Oh that Chrism smells so good. 
Thanks to our wonderful proxy who stood in for Godparents who could not make it last minute.

We were fortunate that the priest from the Byzantine parish in Irving (http://www.stbasilsinirving.org/) came to  our Roman church to perform these rites for Annie.  Now she is a fully initiated Christian. “May God grant her many blessed years in peace, health and happiness!”
