Jesus Placed Children in the Center of His Ministry

Today at Mass the Gospel of Matthew was read: "Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me".(Matthew 18:3-5)

Our Pastor began his homily today reflecting on this Scripture. He stating that, "Jesus placed children in the center of His Ministry". Children indeed were important to Jesus and he made a point of calling them to Himself.

Yesterday the Children's Rosary received a package with 19 handmade rosaries. A note was included it read:

Hi my name is Henry and I am eight years old.  I made these rosaries to share with other people. Thank you for sharing these rosaries with other children. God Bless you. 

Seeing this note I was reminded of what our Pastor said this morning. It must give Our Lord great joy to see children praying and also to see children helping other children come to prayer.

We would like to thank Henry for his service to Our Lord and witness of faith.

Happy Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe!
