Dear Friend in the Lord,

Children – Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims His Compassionate Love and Care for children.  They have no Jewish legal rights; and are vulnerable.  Yet, they are open to God’s Truth.  Ponder on, “Do we have the eyes and heart of Jesus, to relate to children with His Love and Compassion?  A child who is loved deeply in the family, will find much peace in his life.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 10:13-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus, for him to touch them. The disciples scolded them, but when Jesus saw this he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. In truth I tell you, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’

Then he embraced them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing.
