Here you will find a brief video of our daughter's baptism, which took place one year ago today. She was baptized on St. Michael's Day, and she departed in the Lord the next afternoon. I miss my little Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael SO MUCH! http://mysteryandmeaning.blogspot.com/2010/11/hosanna-maryam-memory-eternal.html
Jesus gazed at me through my little daughter's countenance for 11 weeks. As I held her in my arms, I held Christ Himself. And yet I still sin. I continue to indulge my passions, my ego, and my selfishness. What excuse do I have, for I have been blessed to hold a saintly infant in my arms?!
I will continue to pray to my daughter every day:
"Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael:
Pray for Mama, Papa, Noah, Zion, and Adayah"
May her memory be eternal!
