My older brother's wife is going to have a baby. She's due in March and they have asked me to be the baby's Godmother.
This is a very important role in the life of all Catholic families. And, while my Godmother is my wonderful Aunt Clare, I have to say, I know very little about it. What does a Godmother do? I know that officially speaking their role is to assist in the spiritual upbrining of their Godchild(ren). How does one go about this?
I have to say, as touched and humbled as I am by this honor at this point, I feel little equiped for it. I need guidence.
