Teresa smiles as she holds her little prince! Baby Raphael was a peaceful as could be during his blessing ceremony. He enjoyed the tasting of lemon juice, sugar water and wine—as well as the blessing of water. Grandpa recited the blessing of the wine in Hebrew. I read his parents’ beautiful words about their love for their son. There were tears hearing these words from the heart. We honored grandparents and appointed godparents. We ended with the Priestly Blessing, shouts of Mazel Tov and the music from the Lion King, The Circle of Life. So much joy! There is so much God in a baby!
