The handmaid of God Sophia Irene...

...receives the Body and Blood of Christ for forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Amen.

Her proud grandfather had the honor of presiding at her birth into the body of Christ, the Church. Following ancient practice, the Church administers Baptism, Chrismation and Eucharist at the same liturgy.

Many years!

The lovely bride thinks that the litte Sophia is "cute!"

What a marvelous joy for all of you.

We join you in giving thanks to God.

Many years, and much joy!

She's sleeping in the next room and what a joy it is to be her uncle!

I'm also happy, seeing this pictures, to see two such wonderful Christian people as Dcn Andrew and Alexis standing as her sponsors. She's in good hands.

Assisting at the baptism is Archpriest John Abdalah, a wonderful spiritual father and a godly priest.

What joy! Can the heart really contain it all?

Christ is risen!

What a joy for you to be blessed with bringing your granddaughter into the Church! Baptism, Chrismation, the Eucharist...for each member of the Body of Christ as it has been throughout the ages.

Congratulations, proud grandfather!
