Catholic Culture: Baby Presented at Lady Altar

Baby von Sonnen was presented last Sunday at the side altar of Our Lady at our local parish.

Atop the consecrated altar stone and starched linen altar cloths, it seemed like the right thing to do.

Days after the churching of women and baptism, as baby approached one month, we decided to present this new life entrusted to us by Our Blessed Lord, to Our Lady.

After our wedding we placed a rose before a blessed icon of Our Lady, and now the following year we have placed our child - a new rose - before a similar icon of Our Lady.

Our Lady of Dublin, thank you!

Miracles do happen.


  1. Beautiful baby girl! What a blessing she must be!

  2. what's with all the "von" Sonnen shit all of a sudden?
