Something to think and pray about this week:
The Old Testament tradition was not exactly child-centered: "The
stick and the reprimand bestow wisdom… Correct your son and
he will delight your soul." (Proverbs 29) The Gospels (Matthew
18, 1-10; Mk 9, 35-37) give us a precious glimpse of how Jesus related
to children. He gave them time, and touch, and urged the disciples: "Change,
and become like little children." Why is theirs the kingdom of
heaven? Perhaps because of their sense of wonder, their readiness to
be unnoticed, their acceptance of dependence on those who love them.
They know what it is to be told off, corrected, punished - and mostly
take it in their stride. They are constantly challenged in learning,
ready to tackle more new things; they know they have a future and look
forward to it. Thank God for children.
