Remember my best friend Beth, and the twins that were born three months early? They are almost seven months old now, and thriving! I was given the high honor of becoming Finn’s Godmother this past Sunday. It was pretty special to me!
I have never witnessed a Catholic baptism, nor have I been a Godmother before. This is all new to me, so I admit I’m flying by the seat of my pants. I was fascinated by the baptismal ritual, including all the anointing oils and prayers and symbolism. I really wanted to pull the priest aside afterwards and ask him all kinds of how and why questions, but I restrained myself. I didn’t want to embarrass my friends or my Godson, you know! Instead, I satisfied myself with taking lots of photos after the ceremony, then Googling as much as I could.
I am blessed to be a special part of Finn’s life, and honored to help him on his spiritual journey. I think it’s going to be pretty fantastic!
