Bishop Mario Vaccari, head of a small diocese in Tuscany, has temporarily suspended the practice of picking godparents for baptism and a sponsor for confirmation. He expressed concern that the roles were being used for secular purposes, far removed from their profound spiritual meaning. In this episode of The Download, hosts Bradley Eli, Rodney Pelletier and David Nussman discuss what it means to be a godparent at a child's baptism or a sponsor at a child's confirmation.
