A sister in Relief Society told us this morning of having toured Salt Lake’s then-newly renovated Cathedral of the Madeleine (our stake had made some contribution so stake members were invited to a special showing). She described the beautiful baptismal font, which was, of course, a basin about ten inches deep.
The guide, knowing her audience, explained the function of the font, saying, “We baptize by immersion. We pour water on the head, which flows over every part of the body. We’re not like you good Mormons — we don’t baptize by submersion.”
