Like a child

May 21, 2016 6:00 am

“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.” (MK 10: 14-15)

“Accept[ing] the Kingdom of God like a child” could be a very difficult challenge for us. It is not only about acceptance in total dependence upon and obedience to the gospel, but also about a very specific relationship with God—as a child. When we come to Him like children, He can welcome us as a Father.

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