Abel Baptized – February 3

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019


For months I prayed to see this day, the day we would be able to bring our baby to the waters of Holy Baptism. Like Simeon I praise God for we have seen His salvation. Today Abel was bound and knit together in Christ’s death and Resurrection.
