Jon the Godfather???

On Saturday I attended the First Communion celebration for a friend’s daughter and while at the Church, another friend asked me to be the Godfather of his son. I immediately thought that it would be cool to be someone’s “Godfather,” but then I started to think about it and realized I know very little about what it really means to be a Godfather.

I am going to talk to some good friends who are from Mexico and grew up in the Catholic church to get their insight before I make a final decision.

I told my friend and his wife that I felt honored to be asked, and wasn’t sure if I was qualified. Later in the day they refereed to me as “Padrino Jon” which in English is “Godather Jon” so I know they like the idea, but I gotta find out a little bit more for myself.

That would be super cool, but also super weird. What if they come calling 20 years down the road? Also, can you get a t-shirt that says you're a godfather?
