Skip to comments.For All the Newly Baptized

After one moment when I bowed my head
And the whole world turned over and came upright,
And I came out where the old road shone white.
I walked the ways and heard what all men said,
Forests of tongues, like autumn leaves unshed,
Being not unlovable but strange and light;
Old riddles and new creeds, not in despite
But softly, as men smile about the dead.
The sages have a hundred maps to give
That trace their crawling cosmos like a tree,
They rattle reason out through many a sieve
That stores the sand and lets the gold go free:
And all these things are less than dust to me
Because my name is Lazarus and I live.
Happy Easter! Christ is Risen indeed!

Do not forget our canidates as well, those who come from other churches and those Catholics who finished up their initation sacraments. Congrats, God Bless!
Last night my granddaughter was Baptized, confirmed and received her first communion. We had 24 all together including five Baptism.
Such an Easter blessing for you! God is good.
And let us pray that all those who were raised as Christians and have drifted away, find their way home to Jesus, whether they were raised in one of the Catholic rites or Protestant denominations.
Perhaps the three Christian movies, Son of God; Heaven is Real; and God Is Not Dead which are “burying” Noah at the box office will help to gather in those who have strayed and those who never knew about our Savior.
Mercat — special blessings to your granddaughter.
I looooove being Catholic!
May also the newly release movie, “Heaven Is For Real” also with the help of the Holy Spirit to bring those Catholics who have driffed away back as well.
