Being a godfather is a blessing

Being a godfather is a blessing

misunderstood the concept of godfather.

Many think that with three times a year they have cleaned. It’s not like that.

No child needs a person who remembers them on birthdays, Easter and Christmas accompanied by one gift at a time. Give me some attention.

The godfather is the spiritual parent. Do you know what that means?

That the difference from the child’s parents is that the godfather did not give birth to him and they do not have the same blood. And trust me it’s a minor difference.

Being a godfather is a blessing

You have a child without giving birth to it.

You must be active in his life, guiding, protecting, caring and supporting him. Be a role model for that.

For him to have you who will provide him with security and reassurance when he fights with his parents.

Because this happens to everyone and we have all said at least once in our lives that we want to leave home.

You as the godfather should be the next house he wants to go to. Because he will know that you will not take his parents’ side because you are an uncle or aunt and grandparent.

By God, we don’t want to touch these sacred relationships, but in the mind of the child, the godfather’s point of view is more objective, even if there is “collaboration” with the parents underneath.

Because this is how the parent-stepparent relationship should always be for the good of the child.

Collaborative, not competitive.

Parents should promote godparent-child communication and be proud of their relationship.

Be that as it may, the godfather will always know some more secrets about matters that the child will be ashamed to tell his parents.

And he should listen to it, advise it and be his ally.

That is why parents must, when choosing a godfather, see the love and devotion in his eyes.

To be sure of his character and responsibility and to have absolute trust.

Not to obey the customs and nonsense around them, but to their heart and instinct.

And you, as a potential godfather, must think very seriously about this decision.

It should be completely conscious and come out of you.

To love the child, as your child. Be by his side every step of the way. To know that he has a “friend” who will never betray him and will be close to him in the easy and the difficult.

Be a reference person for that. The closest after his family.

May the relationship with your godfather be a deeply beneficial one.

The sacrament of baptism will unite you in a deep and meaningful way for your whole life in a unique and irreplaceable sacred bond.

This bond must never be broken, no matter how many obligations there are in everyday life.

Even if there is mileage. After all, a person who wants to be by your side can be in many ways.

Godfather is a magical concept.

If you see the essence of your role, you will be one of the lucky ones.

You will understand it from the fullness you will feel hearing the child call you godfather or godmother. You will understand it as you watch it grow and you will be filled with pride in its every move.

Those who are godparents know.

And I, let me say, what a lucky and blessed person I feel to have experienced this concept from both sides. With a godmother who is always by my side and adores me and a godmother who I adore and makes me feel proud and lucky every day.

Thank you both. I love you.
