This weekend I had the honor to attend John's niece's baptism!
Truth be told, I have never been to a baptism. I also have never been to a Catholic mass. It was a pretty overwhelming experience. While I was raised Episcopalian, I haven't been to an actual "church service" since I was 13. When I was 19 I changed religions to Quaker which is VERY different from Catholic.
This baptism was even more special in our household as John is Camille's godfather!
Little Camille was a champ. She didn't cry at all during the service or during her actual baptism. She kept her eyes on her two older sisters and had the biggest grin.
While I respect all forms of religion and John's Catholic upbringing I often wonder if I would baptize my child. My faith does not do a formal baptism like most Christian faiths but I often wonder, would it really hurt to do one? Also, I feel like it would be a nice way to show respect for John's family.
What are your opinions?
Are you the same religion as your partner/spouse?
