Marked as Christ's Own

This morning Bishop Katharine preached on the Transfiguration of Jesus. She called it a "revealing moment" when God shone forth as a reminder that we are all beloved of God. She then proceeded to baptize Baby Z and Little L. M2 was so generous - letting the Godmother's (Moi and LG) hold the babies. We processed in carrying them and held them through out the service, including the baptism when Bishop Katharine poured water over their tiny heads. We used the baptism liturgy from the New Zealand Prayer Book. It was amazing. Here are some photos....

Baby Z has sleep apnea (common with preemies) so, she is on a monitor...
