The Pope Baptizes Sixteen Lucky Babies in the Sistine Chapel

Pope Benedict XVI baptizes a child at the Vatican Sunday, Jan. 8, 2012. The pope baptized 16 babies in the splendor of the Sistine Chapel. Some of the infants looked at him wide-eyed after he poured water from a golden shell-shaped dish over their forehead, as Benedict administered the sacrament Sunday, welcoming them formally by name into the Catholic church.
