With the wonderful weather we have been having in Minnesota we have been having trouble getting the family together for my newborn son's baptism. He is going on just over 4 weeks now and had to postpone his baptism and the only opportunity to have the entire family together would be the end of January now.
I feel very uncomfortable with waiting so long. It's been a challenge to get our god parents and the rest of family together on a common date that works. Both sides of our family and the god parents are supportive wonderful people but the logtistics of everyone's life has been a challenge. Some of the family are not Catholic and don't fully accept my reasoning for 'rushing' it along.
I have (not so bluntly but) stated my intentions to move forward sooner then later. I would like to move forward with the baptism privately with a follow up ceramony with everyone at a date that works. I'll be connecting with our priest again later this week but wondered what your thoughts might be. Am I over thinking this or what would you do? I have concerns each day that he has not baptised!?
