Taking a Dip in Holy Waters

17 Apr

Last Sunday (April 10), Lucas was baptized at St. Andrews Church in Newtown.

He was dressed like a pilgrim.

Sat on his father’s lap, wide awake, during the ceremony.

Took a dip in holy waters and was blessed with oils.

And, today, one week later, he still smells of Chrism, and, although I totally dig sniffing his head every day, I’m thinking we must not be bathing him very well!

Welcome to the church, little guy.  I’m glad I don’t have to smell that stinky original sin on ya’ anymore.
