A festal day

I don't have a valentine...but today is my baptismal anniversary!

Blessed are you, Lord God, ruler of the universe; we praise you for your love and mercy which you have shown to all your people.

Today we give you thanks and glory as we celebrate the anniversary of the day when you made Geoffrey your son in baptism.

Give him the grace to live in your love, and help [his] family to come closer to you by faith, prayer, and example.

All glory is yours, Father, through Jesus your Son in the communion of your Spirit, now and for ever. Amen
