Let The Children Come

Let your soul be filled with prayers of sacrifice, even on your days of rest. Offer these days especially for the young. Even when my Most Holy Son was tired, He wanted the children to come to Him. That is why you also must never be tired. You know, it is Him who asked you to continually share in His work of Redemption.” (May 4, 1962)

Today’s Readings: People were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them,
“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them,
for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Amen, I say to you,
whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child
will not enter it.”
Then he embraced the children and blessed them,
placing his hands on them. (Mark 10)

Prayer Meditation- O Lord we bless You, praise You and glorify You because You never ever turn children down- You always want the children to come to You! So different from the world that does not seem to value children and families anymore. You want all of us to come to You as little children- with trust and surrender, because if we do not we will not be able to enter the Kingdom. We are nothing, and You are all and You are Our Father who loves His children and we are all of His children! And You want us in these times to bring to You in prayer and sacrifice all of our children and young people so that they would know You, love You and serve You and life with You forever!
