Bapatism (as Eli would say...)

Well, there is a new saint in the Kingdom of God! (Hope he stays that way ;-)). It was really a beautiful Vigil. I've never been in a place before where the Vigil is PACKED, and the Sunday Mass is about 1/2 full. Father Dave was wonderful. When we got to the front of the church, he whispers to me "Do you want it poured on his head, or do you want to dunk him?" Of course, I said "DUNK HIM!!" We had to strip him (great pictures for his future wife or religious superior). I was praying that there were no surprises in the diaper! Yes! God is so good - clean as a whistle. So we got him naked and dunked him. It was magnificent!
The whole gang around the tomb.
