Czech woman baptized by Pope Francis

A Czech woman who was baptized by Pope Francis on Holy Saturday described it as a powerful, mystic experience. Taťána Čempelová from the town of Dětmarovice in Moravia, who was one of eleven believers from around the world whom Pope Francis baptized during the traditional Easter Vigil liturgy in St. Peter's Basilica on Holy Saturday, said she was overawed by the atmosphere, and filled with humility and happiness to be part of the event. She is the first Czech in the country’s modern history to be baptized by the Pope.
