Thoughts About Texas Female Boobs and Stylish Adult Baptisms

I have to admit I am tad conflicted about this video . I do agree with some of the concerns of this Anglican Priest here. Especially about the state of funerals in this day and age. That being said though this is sort of so so TEXAS there is actually some sound advice here.

Now I am not advocating this for Catholics Lord Have Mercy no. Since we like to Baptize adults on Holy Saturday Night IN A CHURCH I don't think we are going to encounter this

However speaking as a former Protestant that was raised with low or rather non sacramental understanding of Baptism this is sort of refreshing for what I expect might be a big part of this demographic. It does treat the event with some significance and it's worthy of perhaps some celebration that is sort of a big deal. SO IN MANY WAYS IT'S A IMPROVEMENT if done with God being a central focus.

I mean there is no reason why there can't be nice cake and refreshments later.

 One last thought as to this. We Catholics sort of make bigger events about babies being baptized than adults as to the celebration aspect outside the LITURGY . As to infants we have a "celebration" to often mark the event. It is often also done with an appropriate style and dignity. While we might sort of laugh at this vid, I think its important to recall that when converts come into the Church that also needs to be marked perhaps in a more special after liturgy  way . At least it gives Catholics , besides those that go to the two and half hour Holy Saturday service time to meet them and welcome them. It also gives us an opportunity on a more personal level to let them know we are there for them as an community. So I am tad less critical of this in some ways.

Oh about the "boobs" I think she gives sound advice.

I was Baptised by total immersion in a very non-sacramental and on-liturgical Church--that though Baptism was necessary for salvation.

There were several of us together, and afterwards there was a big dinner with the congregation.
