I love it when people show up with 5 or 9 children. 

Is there a first name or something to put on prayer list, or the name of who will be someone's patron saint?  (There's a bunch of us who are #1Sinner, and I'd rather not refer to someone else that way  Smiley )

I was touched to see an entire family received into the church on Holy Saturday 2006.  When I entered the church, I saw a large tub in the middle of the church.  I had never seen a baptism on Holy Saturday never mind the baptism of adults.  I was moved to tears.   Cry

Congratulations and enjoy the rest of Lent.   Smiley

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I'm guessing the practice of receiving converts isn't uniform and depends on one's background. We are coming from a traditionalist Roman Catholic background. My wife, oldest son and I are being received by confession of faith and anointing on the forehead. My younger children will all be Chrismated.
