Our 8th grandchild was baptised on Sunday with 4 other children.  There is always a lot of joy in these occasions, and this was no exception. 

Something that struck me this time, however, was the choice of names.  There were no trendy names in this batch of babies.  In fact, Our Blessed Mother and St. Elizabeth were honored in the names of all the three girls being baptised–Maria Isabel Andrea, Mary Elizabeth, and Marie Isabella.  Is there a new trend back toward saints’ names?
