Born: July 12, 2000Baptized: September 27, 2000 in Tijuana, Baja California at 'Parroquia de Jesucristo Sumo y Eterno Sacerdote'
Fun Fact: I was baptized on the day of my Uncle Cesar's (my godfather) birthday!
the story behind my name, Rosa Karina
My aunt, mother's sister, was named Karina. She, too, passed away a more than year before my birth. She was my moms only sister, so my mother decided to make 'Karina' my middle name.
Every time my family and I go to my grandparents ranch in Tecate, which is every other weekend, I see my uncle Cesar. My mom and him are very close, so we spend lots of time with him and his family. Sadly, I do not keep in touch with my godmother.
Gospel of Mark 10:13-16
And they were bringing children to him, that he might touch them; and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it he was indignant, and said to them, "Let the children come to tom, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it." And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands upon them.
This reading truly speaks about welcoming a child to the kingdom of God and telling them to come to him and not let others bring them. I liked this reading because it shows how we are to come to God when we need Him.
