Pope Benedict XVI baptises a child.
Today I was honored to become the godmother of a dear friend's little baby boy who was baptized this morning. It was a beautiful baptism ceremony following mass. What an honor it is to have been entrusted with such a special role in this sweet little baby's life as he grows in his faith.
"The greatest gift that God could send He sends with love to you:
a dear and helpless little child, a responsibility too.
Each child that God gives to us is only lent a while
to treasure, love, protect and guard from every snare and vile.
To form within its innocent heart His image good and true.
God bless this tiny newborn baby and may He bless you too."
