My wife and I just baptized our first child yesterday. We’ve been trying for years to have a baby and we were finally blessed!
When choosing a Godparent we looked for someone who was really faithful to the church and lived their lives accordingly. My older (and only) brother stopped going to church years ago and supports many things I consider anti-Catholic (i.e. abortion, gay marriage).
I didn’t pick him, even though it was hard to make that decision. I picked my friend from school who is as hardcore with the faith as we are.
I heard from my brother today that I’m no longer welcome at his home and I’m essentially disowned by him. I know I picked the right Godparent for my son, but what can I do to get my brother back? Anyone dealt with this before?
