I laughed at the last pic. I always imagined infant baptism to be somewhat traumatic, and had anxiety about doing it to my two kids... but that baby in the last pic just seems to be chillin'  Smiley

Problem: John finds a spider under his bed. John eats the spider. John gets sick to his stomach.

Question: Why did John get sick?

Wonderful pictures.  "The Lord added to the Church daily those who were being saved" (Acts 2.47).

Squeaky clean
A child is baptized during a mass baptism ceremony in the town of Mtskheta outside Tbilisi, Georgia, on July 13. About 700 children were baptized by the Georgian Orthodox church during the ceremony led by Patriarch Ilia II.
