Back Home from Where It All Began

Monday greetings to all on this day filled with fours!

I had a wonderful week away, spending time on the shores of Cape Cod and with family members in Massachusetts.

While there, I had the chance to visit the church where I was baptized, Saint Anthony of Padua in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

When I was baptized, the font was located in the sacristy. A few years ago it was restored and brought into the church and placed at the side altar of Saint Ann.

Here is a photo I took with the lid swung into the open position.

And here I am. This was a special moment for me. I had visited the place in 1985 and had not been back since. May 25, 1958 . . . the day that everything changed at this font.

Lots to catch up on here at the office. I will have more to share over the next several days.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

How fortunate you are to be able to visit the place of your baptism. Mine has been closed for thirty years.

I was baptized at that same font.
