Dear Friend in the Lord,
Children’s Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus showed His preferential love and affectionate compassion for children. He reminded His disciples not the turn them away, but bring them to Him for special blessings. Ponder on, “Are we protective of the vulnerability, innocence and purity of children’s faith in God, when we relate to them?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
People brought little children to Jesus, for him to lay his hands on them and say a prayer. The disciples turned them away, but Jesus said, ‘Let the little children alone, and do not stop them from coming to me; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of Heaven belongs.’
Then he laid his hands on them and went on his way.
