Last week after the 10 am mass, I baptized two babies here at St. Joseph and I told the families that as a priest who obviously has no children, this is the closest we come to fatherhood. I often wonder what happens to the children I’ve baptized and where they are in their spiritual life. Sometimes a person will come up to me and ask me if I remember them, and I may or may not. But then they say, “You baptized me!” That’s a nice feeling for a priest. Today’s feast commemorates Mary and Joseph bringing Jesus to the temple, not to be baptized, but to be presented to the world. The prophets knew who and what Jesus was to be for the salvation of all mankind and today’s feast celebrates this glorious event. Don’t worry, be happy!
