Godparents

Now it has been stated...that godparents take upon themselves the duties of a tutor. Consequently they are bound to watch over their godchildren when there is need for them to do so: for instance when and where children are brought up among unbelievers. But if they are brought up among Catholic Christians, the godparents may well be excused from this responsibility, since it may be presumed that the children will be carefully instructed by their parents. If, however, they perceive in any way that the contrary is the case, they would be bound, as far as they are able, to see to the spiritual welfare of their godchildren.  ~St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica III-67-8

                                     Credo!
                                                               I do believe!

  2. To be asked to be a Godparent is one of the greatest honours. I love my seven Godchildren so very much and thank God for these extra blessings I never foresaw I'd be given. Hey - I've just realised, I lost 7 children due to miscarriage and I've been given 7 Godchildren. Does that mean something?

    Congratulations on your new little Godchild. May God bless you all!
