I hope I posted this in the right section. I am in Rcia and unbaptized. I had a lot of Catholic friends but none practicing. Well, except one but she literally moved to the other side of the country 2 weeks before Rcia started. Anyway, because of this, I was assigned a sponsor by the rcia team. I have afew questions about this.
1) When I am baptised, will this person be considered my godparent?
2) If so, If I meet another Good Catholic whome I think I would rather have as my Godparent, can I ask this person to be my godparent?
3) Do godparents have to be older than their godson/goddaughter? (My sponsor is actually younger than me)
I ask all these questions because I have not even talked to my sponsor more than 2 or 3 times since they were assigned to me. It botheres me alittle because I instantly felt love for this person when I knew they would be my sponsor. It bothers me alittle when I think than someone who would be considered my godparent will only be so in name only. No other relationship between us. Like I said, the only other practicing Catholic I talked to moved far away. Part of me just says "You are a adult, so what if your godparent and you dont even talk?" The other part wants a friendship with my sponsor. My sponsor is a female too. I am in my late 20s and I think she is in her early 20s. Any thoughts on all this would be appreciated. Thank you :)
