Baptism is the greatest gift I have received because it opened for me the door to heaven. The door to a place that is eternal, an eternal bless that is more that I could ever aspire. Who knows if working my whole life could grant me a bit of heaven…
I feel thankful for this blessing and wish to share it to babies. Because they, being not able to discern by themselves, have the right to be educated. Their parents may want to transmit the most valuable to their children, opening the door to this full-time happiness.
Catholicism is also cross; so later in life, when being able to chose by themselves, they will freely decide their path. They already started with the right foot, and a choice will be required. There are plenty of offerings -either spiritual or not spiritual- out there; so when the time comes, they will have to decide. And whatever their decision, God will keep loving them. Life will go on: the Sun will keep shining, and they will be still breathing 🤪.
Leng Vong Reiff had just received her second dose of a Covid vaccine and thought guiltily of her two young, unvaccinated sons. Schools have reopened, and families with those under 12 are finding ways to get their kids inoculated, even though they’re not officially eligible yet. Like countless parents across the nation, she was searching for vaccine clinical trials, found one, applied and got a call back.
Wanting to vaccinate our children, is like baptizing them, being Catholic. Because it means the beginning of a better future –the one in heaven. Since parents want the best for their sons, it makes a lot of sense to provide this fundamental sacrament to babies, even when they haven’t learned to talk neither to reason as adults. Actually not baptizing them could be negligent, not allowing the most blessings.
On medical issues, there is always a second opinion. Some may argue that returning to school can be dangerous. If vaccination is not a legal option, the better could be to talk to our kids. I would remember them to keep their distance, teaching on how to do it. Depending their age, they could easily forget or get distracted when playing games. So try to avoid risks. Pandemic is not a game to play, not even in young citizens.
