It is always a special honour to be asked to be a godparent. As parents I know how carefully my husband and I considered who we would ask to be our children’s godparents when chose to have them baptized in the Catholic church. We wanted someone that would be there to support our children in their faith journey as well as support us in that journey as well. It was, and still is, important to us that our children’s godparents love their faith and share love and joy with our children. When someone asks us to be godparents we hold ourselves to our own standard. We want our godchildren to know God’s love through us and we want to support them in their journey however we can.
A couple weekends ago we became godparents to twins! A first for us! It was such an honour to take this special role in our friend’s lives and we are so happy that we celebrated their babies’ baptism with them. Now we boast six godchildren, each one a beautiful gift. I would love to get a picture of them all together, which might be a bit of a challenging when three live up north.
