Surrounded by all of God’s followers
with open arms and open hearts.
Drop by drop,
water gently touched Dante’s head
as he was blessed in the name
of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
It is as if we saw God’s Word
in the pure water dripping
on Dante’s face:
The joyous community gathered around the little table
and welcomed Dante into
the Mercy community.
Everyone was able to witness
God’s love at Mercy’s first baptism.
