A Gift of Pollo for the Madrina
About a month ago, one of the mother's in my community asked me to be the Godmother of her daughter. After a long conversation, in which I had to tell her that I am not Catholic, nor had I been baptized myself, she still insisted that I take on the responsibility. I accepted. The following are photos of the baptism from last weekend. The madrina is responsible for the child's moral upbringing as well as to provide any support. The ceremony lasted 2 hours and then the parents hosted a party for the family. The gave the padrino and I a gift of a whole chicken.
