Thirteen years ago today ...

... I was baptized into the death and resurrection of Our Lord and Savior, received the Holy Spirit in the oils of Confirmation, and participated in the Holy Eucharist for the first time.

Memorare, o piisima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia esse derelicta. Nos tali animati confidentia ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, currimus; ad te venimus; coram te gementes peccatores assistimus. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba nostra despicere, sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Pray for me.

Happy Feast day. This day is also the birthday of one of my favorite priests (who at different times was my spiritual director and for a short time my boss).
