Photos from May 16th Baptism

This evening, I had the joy of receiving through email photos from the mom of baby Sara Charlotte whom I baptized last year on May 16. Baby Sara was the youngest baby I ever baptized inside the church (outside of hospital). She was only 13 days old. Her mom sent me the photos so that I can share them here in the blog. I posted a photo of baby Sara last year HERE.

It was wonderful to see parents having their baby baptized early. That is what the Church urges the faithful to do. According the Canon Law (867-1), “Parents are obliged to see that their infants are baptized within the first few weeks. As soon as possible after birth, indeed even before it, they are to approach the parish priest to ask for the sacrament for their child, and to be themselves duly prepared for it.”
