Mother & Child


Oh my, how sweet and adorable is this?

The first picture of Roisin and her baby daughter Clodagh, taken at the baby's christening on Sunday. Just like her mother, little Clodagh is now a Catholic.

Lovely lovely!

Does this mean Roisin and Simon are married? In the Catholic church, a priest will not baptise a baby that is born outside of wedlock.

Well, she is Irish after all... She once said in an interview she feels bad after one-night stands due to her Catholic upbringing. (Attitude, 2003)

Disappointed?? What about? Wrong dress, eye make up?

He/She is probably disappointed with the fact that Ro is Catholic. Right?

What's the big deal? Most of the worlds greatest artists are or were Catholics. The Catholic church has a great sense of drama and entertainment, which is good for the artistic mind.

I don't know, I didn't expect Roisin to be into Religion, that's all. It changes something for me...

loads of people have their children baptised without being lunatic religious freaks. it's more a question of tradition than strong religious belief.

@someone who said:

I beg to differ. Baptising children without faith is a hypocrisy, so I think she believes. And keep that "lunatic religious freaks" comment to yourself and try using the later said "strong religious belief" more without offending people.

Beautiful baby and beautiful mom!

Gorgeous photo.

I don't think we can infer anything about Roisin's religious beliefs from the fact that the lovely baby was baptised.

This may sound a little strange but many Irish catholics don't take Catholicism too seriously!

Baptising children without faith is a little hypocritical, but its very commonplace in Ireland for a number of reasons:
1) Its the standard cultural "welcome to the world" ritual here and its convenient to re-use the format, rather than inventing your own naming ceremony.
2) You have to be baptised to participate in First Holy Communion, and Confirmation, which are 2 more big cultural events that children do not want to miss out on.
3) Non-religious children may be seen as a little strange, and could be discriminated against.
4) Some schools require or at least expect the child to be baptised.

Also, almost every kid born out of wedlock is baptised. It would be very unusual for a priest to refuse these days.
