Who turned out the lights?
There was a baptism this past Sunday during Mass. Well, technically two, they were twins. :) In our Church the baptism comes right after the homily. The priest and families made their way to the baptismal font and the lights were lowered so a live image could be displayed on one of the Church walls (we are part of a very large parish.) As they made their way back all the music stopped and it grew very dark. One certain little girl who had been wonderfully quiet and content suddenly looked up with big eyes and said, "What happened?!" in a loud and concerned voice. When our shushes, pointing, and whispers of "babies are being baptized" were not enough she repeated her question even louder complete with shrugging shoulders. Snickers and chuckles erupted around us and we couldn't help but join in.
