Dear Friend in the Lord,
Children – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims a special preferential love for children as they are innocent, vulnerable and open to God’s abundant blessings and Truth of Salvation. Ponder on, “Children reflects very beautifully the image of God’s Presence; we are called to cultivate their values of the Kingdom of God.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
People were bringing little children to Jesus, for him to touch them. The disciples turned them away, 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. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’
Then he put his arms round them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing.
