New Catholic

I went to a baptism today, of a friend's new baby. At the party afterward, I got to hold the new little Christian for quite a long time. I am totally blissed out on that chrism-annointed-baby smell. Isn't that one of the best smells in the world? I think my top three favorite smells are, in no particular order, newly baptized baby, incense and beeswax, and roast chicken. I know the last one is a little incongruous compared to the first two, but all three have to do with celebration of various sorts.
