An amazing picture became a message of faith in Spain

This was taken at the baptism of Valentino Mora,
son of Erica, a single mom of 21
who asked the photographer
to take a picture of her son for free

The photo of the baptism of Valentino Mora
is sweeping the Internet,
because at the time the priest
pours the Holy water over his head,
the water flows in the shape of a rosary
(see photo above)

This story began at the
Parish of the Assumption of Our Lady in Cordova, Spain,
where the baptism of a one month baby took place

 At the time that Valentino came to the baptismal font
for the sacrament of baptism,
Erica asked the photographer Maria Silvana Salles,
who was hired by other parents baptizing their babies,
to take a photo of her son as a favor,
since the young mother had no way of paying for it

The photographer, moved by Erica's request,
agreed to take a photo of Valentino


Maria Silvana works with a traditional camera
and had to send the film to be developed to a shop in Cordova When she received the photos,
she noticed with surprise that the water poured
from the head of Valentino was a perfect rosary

The photo of the baptism of Valentino
has awakened faith in the people of Cordova
who come to the humble home
of Erica and Valentino Mora to touch him

The truth is that this sign of faith
has mobilized this town in Cordova,
whose neighbors go to Maria Silvana's store
to buy the picture as if it were a prayer card
