We have been planning Andi's baptism on December. Yesterday, I received a letter from our parish about the guidelines on how to choose a godparents for our child.
Sometimes parents tend to overlooked the importance of godparents or rather the real role of these people in our child life. Some people choose based on social standing of the person, how close these people to the family, how these people influenced their lives, or how these people could help their child grow spiritually.
The last one are usually overlooked by us. Godparents are supposed to serve as model or guide to our child to grow in faith. How to live a Catholic life, learn and practice catholic traditions. These people has very important roles to play in our child's life.
So, how do you usually choose your child's godparents?
