In When You Are a Godparent Elizabeth Bookser Barkley reflects on the responsibility and significance of being chosen to share your faith and personal experience with a child. She examines briefly the Sacrament of Baptism and its ritual celebration, offers suggestions for preparing for this lifelong role and for supporting the parents as the child grows in faith, and discusses some ways a godparent can model the Christian faith and share that faith with the godchild at various stages.
This invaluable resource also includes questions for reflection or discussion, stories from godparents, tips for appropriate gifts and practices, and passages from the liturgy of the sacrament, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church for prayerful meditation.
