This morning at Mass, Father H had the opportunity to do something he appears to really enjoy: baptizing a child. And on Pentecost, no less!
In this case, the child was none other than Adventure Boy!
Father H believes that baptisms are for the whole community–they are not just “private family celebrations” because the whole parish, the whole Catholic community, is the family of the person being baptized. He encouraged everyone to renew their Baptismal promises and really think about our commitment to help Adventure Boy as he grows in the faith.
TheDad and I are Adventure Boy’s godparents. We pray that his life in the Church will be fruitful. We pray for his parents, his grandparents and his brother and sisters. And we take our responsibility seriously to help raise this child in the faith.
God bless you, Adventure Boy!
