My son's confirmation is next week, and as a gift we are giving him seven books with themes representing the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. For example, for the gift of Right Judgement/Counsel we selected Harper Lee's book To Kill a Mockingbird.
We have already thought of a few books, but I thought I'd ask you for suggestions. What books (any genre) would you suggest to represent the following:
Wisdom in order to see God at work in our lives and in the world.
Understanding to know how we need to live as follower of Christ.
Right Judgement/Counsel to know the difference between right and wrong.
Courage/Fortitude to stand up for what is right in the eyes of God.
Knowledge to know oneself and to know God.
Piety/Reverence for a deep sense of respect for God and the Church.
Fear of the Lord (awe of God) to recognize our all powerful God.
(BTW, I got this idea a while ago from our Catholic Teacher Extraordinaire, Laura, and filed it away to use later...so, thanks Laura!)
