Baptism (A to Z)

This year Easter was extra special for us, my littlest girlie received her Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil mass. She has studied so diligently for two years in her RCIA classes and as she emerges from the Baptismal font you can see the joy on her face.

The four and a half hour mass was beautiful, a renewal of faith for all in attendance.

... But I'm me, so I was a basket case stuck in a room with so many people.  The doctor recommended, and I followed her recommendation, that this occasion would be a good time to use some of my xanax so that I could enjoy the special occasion without an a-w-k-w-a-r-d anxiety attack.

So excited for my baby girl!

BTW, first time I've ever seen a full submersion Catholic Baptism... kinda cool.


  1. Hi Kathleen, Congratulations on Caitlin's baptism and on your overcoming your anxiety enough to attend. I will say a prayer for you right now that God will help you to continue in the direction of health by the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. God bless, Maria from Delight Directed Living
