Celebrating the 4th of July

Today was her big day! Welcome to the Church, little one! ❤️
#4thofJuly #baptismday #independenceday #brandnewcatholic #freefromoriginalsin #letfreedomring

{A friend took pictures of her actual Baptism and the Latin Mass that followed so I don't have many from the day.
I'll share the rest once he sends them to us. It was such a blessed day!}

Receive this burning light, and keep thy Baptism so as to be without blame: keep the commandments of God, that when the Lord shall come to the nuptials, thou mayest meet Him together with all the Saints in the heavenly court, and mayest have eternal life and live for ever and ever.  #rosesfromhergodmother

Grandpa sure loves his newest granddaughter and she loves him too! He's one of the few people she will allow to hold her for long. The baptism candle was hand-painted and given to us from a friend. She has them in her Etsy shop.

She wasn't up for pictures in her baptism dress while she was awake...

Finally getting to try out his new Father's Day grill

Happy 4th of July! Our children were so happy to get to spend it with Uncle Father T. Gordon this year!
Wish he could have stayed longer than just one day! ❤️🎉 #FSSP #priestlyfraternity


  1. Oh I just love that picture of her close up :-) and the one of the two brothers together, I always love seeing photos of adult siblings together, find it fascinating

  3. JMJ Love all these pictures! The baby is beautiful and it is so heartwarming seeing Father with all of you. I hope you had a joyful reunion of sorts. The day looks like it was perfect. 🙂🌹

  4. Congratulations! Baptism Days are my favorite. I think the smell of Chrism Oil is one of the very best smells in the world. : )
