How have you fulfilled your role as godparent?


My godchildren are growing in numbers and ages. I would like some ideas on how to be a better godparent to them. Any suggestions are welcome. Most live far away.


:smiley: Finally got my sister to pull my Godson/nephew out of ultra liberal private school and into Catholic School! I try to pick up little books for him especially the Lawrence G. Lovasik children’s books. I pray for him and his family all the time.


We have not been godparents long, and our goddaughter lives far away so we don’t see her too often. One little thing we’re planning to do is send a card on her baptism anniversary, and on her namesake saint’s feast day.

I’d love some other suggestions too, but I know the most important thing we can do is pray for our godchildren daily.
