I'm very blessed to be both Godfather and confirmation sponsor for one of my nephews Elijah. He loves St. John Bosco and chose him for his confirmation name.
Talk about pressure! I pray daily for my Godchildren and also for the graces to be a good Godfather and/or sponsor. I think it's important to let them know I'm paying attention to what they are doing and to let them know I'm always there for them. It is also important to be a good example in all walks of life. I know he's young now, but he won't always be, and it will be important for him to have people in his life he can count on. I hope to be one of those people!
Thanks Be to God I can call on his patron saint St. John Bosco for help and to also pray for both of us! St. John Bosco, Pray for Us!
