My godfather just passed away a couple months ago and my godmother, his wife, just came in the library yesterday where I work. She and my mom are still very good friends. I thought a good Friday Photo Flashback would be a couple pictures that I have of him (my godfather), that also just happen to be my baptism.
On a side note, they'd send me a birthday card every year with $5 in it and to this day I still open cards and hope money falls out - from anybody. :D
This was, I believe, January of 1965 and you can tell how long ago it was because I don't even remember the days of women wearing veils on their heads in church, but they did forever. Every so often, even now, there will be one or two older women who still will wear a small veil.
I was baptized at St. Sabina and our family moved when I was a year old to a different neighborhood, which meant a different parish. However, I now live back near St. Sabina and it has been our church since our children started school there in 1993. The baptismal dress is over 100 years old and has been in the family since my grandfather and his siblings were babies, which I love. All three of my children have worn it as well. Maybe that will be another flashback.
