7 Quick Takes Friday - January 6, 2011 - Baptism Edition

More pictures from Gabriel's baptism (there are more than seven, but who's counting?!)

Anointing his chest with oil
Carrying Gabriel around so everyone could put the sign of the cross on his forehead.
"Do you reject Satan, all his works, and all his empty promises?"

"This is our faith. This is the faith of the Church. We are proud to profess it, in Christ Jesus our Lord."

"I baptize you in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."

Godparents carrying the baptismal candle to us

Deacon Luke, Gabriel, me, Collin

Our third (and, sadly, best) attempt at a family pic. Sigh.

Gabriel's godparents are our good friends Joe & Luisa. Joe is Deacon Luke's son!

The whole crew!
