Gabriels Christening

Attended my Nephews Christening this afternoon and had very weird experience with the priest who celebrated the baptism. There are about 8 candidates for baptism and just like any other baptismal rites. God parents were required to attend a seminar. I just didn't expect that the seminar was before the rite itself. I was made to believe that the seminar was at 9 Am and the baptismal rite at 11 AM. This was not my first God child but this was my first personal appearance. Used to have a lot of super proxys before. But since this is my sisters kid. Personal appearance is really needed and this is also a good opportunity to once again bond with the family. So there we were listening to the monotonic lecture of the person-in-charge. After maybe 30 mins of the dull seminar where all that I remember were the phrases, "God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit."

We waited for the priest longer than the seminar and the rite itself and as soon as the priest spoke. All were silent. He spoke in a manner in which you would assume that he's drunk. I thought it was a prank at first. Really! He was speaking gibbrish at 120 words per minute as if being chased by a rabid dog. He couldn't even keep his eyes on what he's reading. He totally blew off the sacredness of the rite.
At the end of the celebration I can say that everything paid off. We welcomed Gabriel Louie Coronel Olegario to the Christian world. Though everybody was obviously tired though and both of the lolos are drunk i can fairly say that it was a success. For the Mom and Dad of this baby boy Job well done and may the grace of God strengthen your newly founded family. Keep in mind that we're always here for you! For you Gabriel, in time you may not have felt the joy of this event the important thing is that you grow up healthy and fast so that we could hook you up with girls. ehehehehe
