We did it!
« on: October 01, 2012, 10:06:48 AM »
This past Sunday my family and I were Baptized/Chrismated!

It has been a 10 year journey for me and about a year for my family, but we all received the Blessed Sacrements yesterday.

It feels good to be home.

Congratulations!  Many, many, happy and blessed years!

Glory to God! Many Years!  :)

Now the struggle truly begins. But you also now have the Sacramental graces to protect, strengthen, and preserve you in your spiritual journey. Never forget that.
