The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 16 "Willie". Copyright (c) 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

   " "I baptize thee William James," he said softly, "in the name o' the Father,
the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen."
   Willie blinked, crossing his eyes as a drop of water rolled down his nose.
He stuck out his tongue to catch it, and Jamie laughed, despite himself.
   "Why did you call me William James?" Willie asked curiously. "My other
names are Clarence Henry George." He made a face; Clarence wasn't his
idea of a good name
   Jamie hid a smile. "Ye get a new name when you're baptized; James is
your special Papist name. It's mine too." "

Once again I come to the end of my week of QOTD, it is always such a privilege to quote Herself's books.
I know that where ever any of us, at LOL, are, Valerie will always be just a thought away. She is one of our Special Lally Angels, that will forever be in our hearts.

[> I love this passage paired with our knowledge of Willie's meltdown when he learns that his beloved groom, who gave him a cherished name, is his father. What an emotional buzzsaw. Thanks for the wweeks of quotes. -- Swarl, Sun, February 26 2017, 7:42:43
