The priest shared his funny stories related to the Gospel about the Baptism of Jesus.
PRIEST: There are lots of names for your child and why you prefer to name him Lucifer? It’s the name of the devil.
MOTHER: Father, it’s the combination of my name and my husband’s.
PRIEST: If you insist, I am not going to baptize your child. I’m sorry.
PRIEST: Why you chose SM to be the name of your child? It’s the name of a company.
MOTHER: SM is memorable to us. It’s the place wherein we’ve met; the place where he courted me and the place where I answered him “yes”.
The last story:
MOTHER: You know Father, you are unfair! Why you disagree to name my child FX? You baptized her child Mercedes; it’s also the brand name of a car!
PRIEST: Okay Mrs., what you would like me to use, gasoline or kerosene?
The same day, I received a Hiligaynon text message from my friend.

Personally, I named my niece JANINE because her birth date is Jan. 9. Belated Happy Birthday BABY! I missed you! And another niece of mine asked me to suggest a name for her child. Finally, she named him, JHUEM- name combination of her (Julie) and her partner (Emmanuel).
This is Jhuem, my fourth grandchild. Meron pa akong fifth to be baptize this coming Jan. 25. Naging lolo ako at the age of 24.
