Jesus Said

[Jesus said,] “Let the children come to me, do not hinder them.” (Mk 10:14; see also 1 Tim 2:4).

On Dec. 28, the Church celebrates the Feast of the Holy Innocents, those children in Bethlehem whom Herod slaughtered in fear of the newborn King (see Mt 2:16-18). And every year, we are reminded to pray both for those children who die before being baptized and to ask their prayers for us and for our intentions.

Let me say that again.

See and Believe

Anyone who has read to a group of children has experienced it: the jostling, the squirming, the scramble to snuggle in as close as possible to “see the pictures!” When our Lord settles in to tell the story of His love, He makes sure that His children can “see the pictures.”
