This Sunday I will be a Godparent for the first time. We will be part of my nephew's Christening. He's five months old and must be the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. I don't have a picture but I will after the Baptism. And all the older relatives, such as my mother, claim he looks just like me when I was an infant. No, I'm not looking for compliments, just stating the facts. ;) Anyway, please pray for the two of us.
Oh and my gift to the little guy is this beautiful cross with a St. Anthony medal in the center. The child's name is Antonio, so I thought it would be very appropriate. I hope he treasures it for the rest of his life.
If you can't tell, that's St. Anthony holding the child Jesus in the center with the words "Saint Anthony Pray For Us" around the perimeter, and of course I have a matching gold chain to go with it.
May he grow in the faith, and now as his Godparent I have a responsibility in guiding him to it. St. Anthony, pray for both of us.
