Here is an excerpt from his latest post:
All catechumens in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) are to have a sponsor. The sponsor represents the parish community. The sponsor speaks on behalf of the Church congregation during the different RCIA Rites. The sponsor is someone the catechumen can share their faith with. The relationship between a sponsor and catechumen should develop into a long-term commitment and a lasting friendship. Choosing a sponsor is a very important decision.
