Last Friday, July 16, was the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. I had the great joy to welcome a Chinese lady (Christian name: Teresa Carmen) to the Catholic Church.
She was referred to me for catechetical instruction by a retire priest, Father Benno Burghardt. Fr. Benno was one of the godparents at the ceremony.
Teresa Carmen was conditionally baptized. She also received the Sacrament of Confirmation and First Communion.
Father Benno does look at Pope Benedict, isn’t he?
