Today is the feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Which is interesting because at the parish where I work we had an absolute explosion lately of people wishing to be baptized or to have their children baptized. The deacon candidate was asking me today if I had any explanation for the run on baptisms. My only plausible reason was that Father does a good job of selling Catholicism in general.
Either that or people are beginning to wonder about the end approaching and want to get their spiritual houses in order before that time comes.
I hope it is the former rather than the latter.
Either way it makes more work for me.
