Washington (ANI): Oscar winning star actor Russell Crowe is
contemplating holy water plunge at the Byzantine chapel he has
built on his Australian farm. The Gladiator star"s three-year-old
son Charlie has already been baptised at the church. He now plans
to get baptised on the same day as his younger son.
"I'd like to do it this year," E!online quoted the 43-year-old
star as telling Men's Journal. "Charlie was baptized there. And
when Tennyson gets baptized there, I will too," he said. Crowe said
that his decision of taking the holy water plunge was inspired by
his sons" baptism.
"My mom and dad decided to let my brother and me make our own
decisions about God when we got to the right age. I started
thinking recently, 'If I believe it is important to baptize my
kids, why not me?'" he told the magazine. "I do believe there are
more important things than what is in the mind of a man. There is
something much bigger that drives us all. I'm willing to take that
leap of faith," he added. The chapel was built on Crowe's 560-acre
farm in New South Wales four years ago.
