  • Probably one of the biggest bones of contention for 21st Century Catholics or at least those who want their children to be baptized, is finding suitable and eligible Godparents, or what the Church officially calls “Sponsors.”

    First, let me begin by saying that the only legal requirement for a child to be baptized according to Canon Law is that: “There must be a founded hope that the infant be brought up in the Catholic religion” (Canon 868:2). Therefore, I have no problem baptizing children of Protestants, Jews, straight, gay or even single parents. That they bring their child to the church requesting Baptism, is almost enough of that “founded hope” which is required.

    Believe it or not, being a Godparent (Sponsor) is actually more difficult to be eligible. Again, according to Canon Law, a Sponsor must be: 1. At least 16 years of age. 2. Celebrated the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist. 3. Able and willing to enthusiastically profess his/her faith during the Rite of Baptism, ready to model a Catholic Christian lifestyle (weekly Eucharist). 4. One or two in number (one a man and one a woman) and 5. Not bound by any canonical penalty (imposed or declared).

    Therefore, if you think your best friend, your cousin, an aunt, someone you take spinning classes with or the babysitter is a kind person to you and your children and they are Jewish or Muslim, it does not work. Because choosing the proper Godparent is not so much about how good a person they are or how much money they have or even if they are close to your family; what is most important is THEIR practiced Catholic faith.

    Now, this does NOT mean that they were Baptized, Confirmed and received their First Holy Communion and have not been back to church since. It does not mean that they attended Saint Joseph School up until the 8th Grade.

    But again, MOST importantly, it is about how they are living their Catholic faith today. It is not about being “spiritual” or “religious” by saying prayers at home and being a good person, but again, it is MORE about living a Catholic life of which the essence is coming to church weekly and not weakly!

    Why all this fuss about finding someone to fulfill these difficult requirements (which at times is almost impossible, and I know). It is because of what this Sacrament truly means. Baptism is the gateway; it is the doorway to the other Sacraments and necessary for salvation by actual reception if not by desire (Canon 849).

    In today’s First Reading, the Prophet Isaiah reminds us that God has “Grasped us by the hand” that He formed us and set us as a covenant of the people. This covenant, this relationship that God offers us is not just about being nice, kind, generous or lighting candles to Buddha in
