I am wondering if anyone on here ran into problems in selecting a godparent. It is an issue that has been concerning my wife and I lately. She is not pregnant yet so we have time. But who knows how long.
We are the only Catholics that we know in our area. We know others from our Parish from Church functions but would not consider any of them "friends" or "acquaintances".
We know very few practicing Catholics that are at or around our age.
We have one friend (female) that is practicing but lives 3,000 miles away. That is about it.
We each have one sibling (again 3,000 miles away) that have fallen away from the Church.
Every other practicing Catholic that we know is a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle. In other words, significantly older than we are. Again, most live 3,000 miles away. My wife does have one aunt that is only 300 miles away.
That is it.
What would you do in this situation?
