By Most Reverend Gerald R. Barnes
This is an excerpt from Bishop Gerald Barnes’ homily at the Diocesan Migration Mass, held at Sacred Heart Church in Rancho Cucamonga on January 12.
There’s a story about this priest who is baptizing a little six-month old infant who is sound asleep, through the questions through the anointing of the chest, through the recitation of the creed. The baby just slept and slept and slept. Well, then it was time to pour the water over the baby’s forehead and the baby woke up. He just woke up and the water flowed on the baby.
