Just recently I’ve heard a lot of people referring to people as their “God-Brother” or “God-Sister”, etc. Obviously these have no real legal standing, but are the terms themselves valid?
Personally, I would support the terms as it gives a fairly unambiguous definition of relationship between people or a “how I know them” scenario.
However, a close friend of mine (also Catholic) says that such terms should not be used as they have no legal standing nor real meaning.
God-sibling(s): The child(ren) of my own God-parents and/or the God-child(ren) of my own parents.
God-Uncle: The brother of either of my Godparents.
Would you use the terms or reject them?
