[Photos] Our new baby, Zelie Catherine Vogt!

Praise God! My wife, Kathleen, and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our fifth child, little Zelie Catherine Vogt.

She was born on Thursday, April 14 at 3:35pm at 7 lbs, 11 oz to a heroic momma and a proud papa. Everyone is healthy and happy!

Zelie is named after St. Zelie, the mother of St. Thérèse of Lisieux who was canonized last year by Pope Francis, and St. Catherine of Siena, the great mystic and reformer.

PS. We got to the hospital at 3:20pm—that’s right, just 15 minutes before birth—and the nurses said if we had been delayed only a few minutes, I would have had to deliver the baby myself on the side of the road ‪#‎worstnightmare‬

It’s really a precious love that Zelie has a long hair, in other words, she’s built for everything that a human being came to life. I love you all and may God bless you richly in His loving care and in His merciful heart.
