PJ’s Baptism

Posted on Friday, July 4th, 2014 at 11:33 am

Our dear little Phillip Samuel, aka PJ, was baptized into Christ’s family last Saturday. It was a beautiful ceremony and we were blessed to have family and good friends, both in person and united in spirit, supporting us. Afterwards we all went back to the house for brunch and fellowship. A good time was had by all, most of all by PJ since he took a gloriously long nap once we got home! Getting baptized is exhausting work when you are 2 months old.

The funny thing about the date of his baptism is that it was the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We didn’t plan it that way, it just so happened that the officiating priest wasn’t free until that day. Coincidence? I think not! PJ’s godmother, my good friend Graciela, held him in her arms and said a beautiful prayer for PJ, rendering him wholly unto the special intercession of our Blessed Mother . We ask Mary for her intercession with her son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Why Mary? Well, we ask for her prayers and assistance because as Jesus’ mother she is closest to him in Heaven, and probably has more pull than anyone else! All praise, honor and glory goes to God – but Mary can bring our humble prayers to the heavenly throne with an extra petition to God on our behalf.

It was a joy-filled day! Here are some pictures.
