Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them

“Children were brought to Jesus that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ After he placed his hands on them, he went away.” (MT 19: 13-15)

“Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them” because “the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” So, if we want to do the best for our children, we need to do only one thing: give them the best parents, who will inspire them to love each other in the most beautiful way.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
