Christening Gowns/Outfits for Boys

A baby is a bundle of joy and is welcomed into the family with pride and excitement. Christening is an important event in the life of the new parents. They would want to purchase the best christening outfits for their little boy. This article gives a brief idea regarding these outfits.

Christening a baby is an important event in the life of Christian parents. It is otherwise known as baptism and can be conducted at any time of the year. However, many parents prefer to conduct it during spring when the weather is warm. There is a belief among many Christians that spring season is the harbinger of new life. Hence, they wish to dedicate their baby, a new life to God. The parents for the christening ceremony of their baby invite close family members and friends. Whether it is a baby girl or a boy, gifts are given to the little ones as part of the ceremony. There is a wide variety of christening outfits for both, baby boys and baby girls that could be used as gifts.

Baby Boy's Christening Gowns

Christening outfits for boys are available in a wide variety of patterns, sizes, and designs. Sometimes the baby's parents do not really know which christening gown to choose.

The main christening outfit for a baby boy is the baptism gown. Traditionally, the christening gown or baptism gown is a long, formal white gown made from fabrics such as silk, organic cotton, soft gabardine, satin, organza, and so on. These gowns are gender neutral and could be worn by either a baby boy or a baby girl. The christening gown is usually worn by a baby who is not a toddler.

Another christening outfit for a toddler baby boy is the "Day Gown". This can be worn after the formal ceremony is over. This christening outfit is a short dress that reaches up to the knees. This outfit is more convenient when you pass the baby around your family and friends.

Today, many little boys are baptized in a two piece suit. This is fast becoming a popular christening outfit for boys. A baby suit for boys is the miniature version of a grown boy's suit or a tuxedo. There is also a matching hat that is a part of this outfit.

Apart from gown, the other christening outfits include the baby boy christening blankets and shawls, christening shoes made from white satin, christening bibs, christening towels, and many more. These outfits are made from fine fabrics like silk, satin, organic cotton, and wool. There is a wide variety of christening hats available to complete the outfits.

Christening outfits are available in various budget strengths. Heirloom christening outfits for boys are available in many baby stores such as gowns and shoes that can be handed down to next generation.

Godmother Responsibilities

By Medha Godbole

There are a number of godmother responsibilities which have to be fulfilled by a godmother. The spiritual life of a child is looked after by a godmother. Scroll down to know what all is a godmother responsible for.

The Church is one of the extremely significant religious institutions over the globe. Baptism is a very important practice in Christianity and thus, has to be taken with utmost seriousness. To ensure that the process goes on smoothly and to preside over the whole ceremony, it is a custom that there are godparents – either a godmother or a godfather present and sponsors the child. The text to come will describe more about godmother responsibilities.

What Exactly is a God Parent

A godparent, in the umpteen dimensions of Christianity notwithstanding, is person who sponsors the baptism of a child. The god parent is there on behalf of the child. It could either be a godmother or godfather. This practice of god parenting has been going on since time immemorial. The godparent responsibilities begin at baptism and continue throughout the life of that child. It not just infants, but the godparent also is a major part of adult baptism.

Now lets take a look at godmother responsibilities after getting an idea as to what is it to be a godmother.

Godmother Duties

Duty #1
As mentioned earlier, the first and foremost duty of a godmother is to sponsor the baptism of the child. Godmother responsibilities for baptism basically include responding on behalf of the infant and representing the baby. What happens during a baptismal service is that the godmother and the parents of the baby have to respond to the questions on the child's behalf. In the process, the godmother and the parents would be asked to declare their Christian faith as well. Some of questions are specifically directed towards the godmother, for instance is she ready to pray for the child, to care for the baby and to get him or her into the community of faith. In addition to all this, though not customary, the godmother as well as godfather responsibilities include giving a christening gift.

Duty #2
Initially the godmother was supposed to be informally responsible for carrying out child's religious education. It was done by default and the godmother and the sole aim was and is still to help the child lead a good Christian life. As far as the church is concerned, the church is extremely particular about the spiritual growth of the child and intends the godmothers to do so.

Duty #3
One more of godmother responsibilities is to act as sponsor for confirmation. That means that those who observe the sacrament of confirmation need sponsors or godparents for the ceremony In such a situation the child is allowed on account of the sacrament is allowed to confirm her faith, having reached an age where she can reason.

Duty #4
The godparent has to be there for the godchild whenever needed. The spiritual growth of the child has to be supervised by the godmother. Not only should the godmother believe in the lord and philosophy of Jesus, she should be ready to share the knowledge and philosophy with the godchild.

Duty #5
Catholic godmother responsibilities in addition to the above include a strong belief in whatever she is professing on behalf of the infant. This means she should be well aware of christening vs baptism . It also includes the fact that incase the child loses her parents, the godmother becomes the guardian of the child.

Duty #6
Godmother responsibilities with regards to an adult being baptized is to assist the person in Christian initiation. Giving witness to the catholic faith by words and actions and serving as an example is very important.

Godmother responsibilities are, at the end of the day spiritual commitment, rather than a legal obligation. It is more of an emotional and spiritual thread which binds the infant and the godmother.

Nowadays, a relative of the baby could also be asked to be a godparent, which is a huge honor for that individual. The individual then gets to have a beautiful relationship with the kid of a friend, philosopher and guide! It is an absolute joy for that person to have a special place in the child's life.

That is all about godmother responsibilities. I think everyone should have someone like that!

What Happens When We Are Baptized?

Contemporary Catholics spend a great deal of time preparing for their own or their child's Baptism. There are new clothes to buy, and classes to take, and godparents to select, all leading up to that moment at Mass when the waters of Baptism touch the new initiate. But Baptism-and all sacraments, for that matter-are much more than the moment of celebration.

The ritual of Baptism does not bring God's love into being as if that love did not exist before the ceremony. Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God who first loved us from the moment of our conception. Baptism celebrates a family's and a community's experience of that love in the baptized.

There are other life experiences-birth, death, washing, growing and so forth-that are celebrated in Baptism. The water represents life, death, cleansing and growth, and it recalls the flood waters of Noah's day and the saving waters of the Red Sea parted by Moses. The candle symbolizes our status as an "Easter people" and signifies the way that the Church "passes the torch" of Christian commitment to those being baptized. The white garment represents the Church's belief that Baptism sets us free from Original Sin.

Baptism happens not only to the individual, but also to Christ's body, the Church. That's why the rite insists that we celebrate Baptism in the Christian assembly, with the community present and actively participating. It is the community, after all, who is welcoming the new members, journeying with them, providing models for them, supporting and nourishing them. Baptism begins with God's love and care revealed to us through Christ. It continues with us, the Church, living and enacting God's love and care through Christ to the world. That's a serious commitment.

How Long After One Becomes A Believer Should They Wait To Be Baptized?

Biblical examples indicate that baptism should take place as soon after a person believes as is possible. In the New Testament, the thought of an unbaptized believer was foreign. Baptism followed belief in Christ as one of the first evidences of faith. In many churches today, evangelistic appeals are followed by the statement that believers must not be ashamed to confess Christ publicly. So people are asked to come stand in front of the church as a confession of their faith in Christ. But in the New Testament, new believers confessed their belief in Christ by being baptized, not by walking the aisle.

It may be advisable to allow for a period of time for instruction in the meaning of baptism and to allow for some evidences of genuine faith to be seen in the believer’s life. But this is not required in the Bible. When a person trusts in Christ, he or she should be baptized as soon as it can be arranged.
