We're Going to the Twins' Baptism!
We're leaving in about 10 minutes to go out to the Midwest to see our son and his wife and our twin baby granddaughters, and we're so excited--because on Sunday, the twins are going to receive their first sacrament: Baptism. As my father, a convert to Catholicism and a staunch supporter of the Church, would joke, "There will be two less heathens in the world." My father, I have pointed out before, is an incorrigible tease, and sometimes his jokes are a bit over-the-top. But it really is exciting that those two little girls will now officially become members of the Mystical Body of Christ. What a joyous occasion it will be!
When I get back, I'll tell you all about it. See you Tuesday or Wednesday.
