Talk about taking it down to the wire. CWN is reporting Miss Xu Song of Taiwan was baptized this past Easter. What is the big deal you ask? Well, Miss Xu Song is 114 years old. Now, I have been known to put things off too, but this is really cutting it close.

Wang Tong Min, diocesan press officer, said “Miss Xu Song, who never married, is still very clear-headed and lively. Her baptism gives new impulse to evangelization and pastoral care.”

Well, the “who never married” part explains the longevity. You have heard of the JPII generation, well Miss Song is of the LeoXIII generation. Now that’s old school.
