Your parish has just had a bunch of catechumens sent for election, only to return as members of the Elect.
The RCIA director, knocks on your door and approaches the Purple Chair with much trepidation and a list. You are asked to please include this list of names in the Vigil’s Litany of Saints:
As you can see, some sibling combinations are here. Also, some shortening of names. We see quite a bit of shortened names as given names. Who’s a saint, who’s not a saint, but acceptable (and why) and who gets a request for a lengthening of a name or a middle name (and why)? How would you handle a request like this? And do you have a problem with including patronal names (if any) of the people to be baptized?
