Feast of the Holy Innocents

Today Michael Jacob will be baptized into our Catholic faith by a Bishop friend of mine who is visiting his mother in Ohio. We will journey there this morning to meet them...a sort of taking the child out of Indiana to Ohio...Israel to Egypt motif.

Joseph ever the wordsmith has asked "Was I bap ba tized too?"

"Yes" we tell him, "that is why you have to go to Church every Sunday. Now your brother will have to go too." This seems to satisfy him.

Joseph was bap ba tized in a monastery in Southern Indiana.


  1. Welcome to our family, Michael Jacob, the family of Holy Mother Church, as a newly adopted child of God.

    May God grant you many, many years in His service in this world and an eternity with Him in the next.
