  • I became a Catholic by Phyllis O'Boyle

    It was a warm May Day. I was four years old. I remember my mother dressed me and my sister in our best church clothes. My dad wore a suit instead of his usual overalls. My mother put on a hat. The baby was fussy in her dress. We went to this big building and stood on a stage with a man dressed funny. He put water on all of our heads, and then he put water on the baby which made her cry and have one of her tantrums. Someone took a picture of us. That was the day I was baptized into the family of God.
