A Special Day for Little Mary

| | Comments (3)

Call me a foolish old uncle, but I just can't help it! This is our little Mary. Before Mary's birth on March 17, 2005, my brother Terence prayed "Hail Mary" after "Hail Mary." (And Terence is not the poster boy for piety!) It was then that Terence and Sandy decided to name their little girl Mary. When Terence was a little baby, I — being not only his older brother but his godfather as well — took him to church one day and placed him on the altar of the Blessed Mother, consecrating him to her. Our Lady has looked after Terence! Little Mary too was entrusted to the Holy Mother of God on the day of her baptism in Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church in Hampton, New Hampshire.


What a beautiful child - I think there is a family resemblance there.

I did the EXACT same thing you did with Terrence - I took my little brother Timmy to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel's altar and consecrated him to her in the same way!

She's beautiful!

I didn't know you could be a sibling's godparent...

St. Therese's godmother was one of her older sisters.
