Real Questions from Bensenville

Why do come parishes require that baptism/confirmation godparents be married by church, while
others don’t require it?


Thanks for the question. The purpose of a godparent/sponsor is to help the parents in the child’s
spiritual formation though their own faith example. In the church’s internal law (i.e. canon law), the
godparent must lead “ a life of faith in keeping with the function to e taken on” (Canon 874, paragraph
3) and “not be bound by any canonical penalty, legitimately imposed or declared” (Canon 874,
paragraph 4). A couple living together outside a church marriage is not able to go to communion, which
goes against these two canons. Some parishes follow these canons, some don’t. For that reason, there
are variations in parish policy. But don’t worry: although a person isn’t eligible to appear in the official
parish register as a godparent, he/she can still be a good example of faith for the child.

 

Preguntales Reales desde Bensenville

¿Por qué algunas Iglesias tienen el requisito que los padrinos de bautizo y confirmación tienen que estar casados por la iglesia, pero en otras no?

Gracias por la pregunta. El punto de los padrinos es ser un buen ejemplo de la fe para ayudar a los
 apas en la formación espiritual del niño. En el derecho canónico, parte de este requisito es que los
padrinos tengan “una vida congruente con la fe y con la misión que va a asumir” (canon 874, párrafo 3), y “no esté afectado por una pena canónica, legítimamente impuesta o declarada” (canon 874, párrafo 4). Una pareja viviendo juntos no puede comulgar, y por eso no cumplen con estos dos cánones.

Algunas parroquias siguen estos cánones, otras no. Por eso hay variedad entre las parroquias sobre esta política. Pero no se preocupe: aunque una persona viviendo sin casarse no puede aparecer en el registro oficial de la parroquia, de todos modos, puede ser buen ejemplo de fe para el niño.

Morning Offering Prayer

Start the day with God!

"O Holy Mary! My Mother; into thy blessed trust and special custody, and into the bosom of thy mercy, I this day, and every day, and in the hour of my death, commend my soul and body. To thee I commit all my anxieties and sorrows, my life and the end of my life, that by thy most holy intercession, and by thy merits, all my actions may be directed and governed by thy will and that of thy Son."
— St. Aloysius Gonzaga
