Video: Ali Wentworth's Orthodox Baptism Nightmare

In the video above, actress Ali Wentworth details the events of her daughter's Orthodox baptism in a somewhat humorous way on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and guest Bill Maher. Historically Great Lent has always been a period of catechesis for catechumens approaching Holy Baptism. Without a proper education, an Orthodox baptism could indeed look like something out of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, yet those a bit educated understand it is more like something out of It's A Wonderful Life.
