During the baptism of his niece, Alice
I was asked by the Parish priest to baptize a baby of one of my close relatives. knowing that I was a missionary in Asia, he asked me to preside the Solemn Mass for the baptism of six babies. My answer was: “Many thanks. That is a grace of God that gives me so much of unexpected joy
With the "new born" and the family
The Joyous smile of Alice, the "Little Angel"
