So today I was asked to be a godparent for the youngest child of friends of ours. Now the first shock has evaporated, I feel honored and responsible. So I come from Belgium where we go on holidays with godchildren, make saving accounts in their name and are the legal guardian in case something happens to the child's parents. That's my background. But I would like to know what is expected of me now from a Polish perspective. (I am catholic, baptised, confirmed and married).
