Homework From the Holy Father
No fair, the Pope gave us homework! Have YOU done yours yet?
"And do not forget your homework today: find out, ask for the date of your Baptism. As I know my birthday, I should know my Baptism day, because it is a feast day." ~ Pope Francis
Do you know the date of your Baptism? Do you celebrate it?
We began celebrating our baptismal days at the Wahlquist house a few years back when one of the kids had a K4J Challenge. We don't go overboard with the celebration. We keep it simple and centered on the Light of Christ.
We celebrate with the child's favorite dinner by candle-light... the candle-light of our baptismal candle.
"To know the date of our Baptism is to know a blessed day." ~Pope Francis
PS. Mine is July 9. (Feel free to mark it on your calendar, but no need to send me gifts as nothing could top the gift of salvation that allows me to live in communion with God!)
