“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they do not belong to you.” (Khalil Gibran) We are the stewards of our children’s futures, not the owners. Even as we pause to say a special “thank you” to mothers and fathers, so we offer thanks for our children.
O God, You sent Jesus to teach us about Your love. He showed us that it included the children, whom the disciples would have turned away. Today we pray that we, too, can learn to gather them to our knees, lay our hands upon them and bless them.read more
“Whosoever welcomes the littlest of these children welcomes me”
Jesus put children at the heart of his vision of the kingdom of heaven, but our society so often fails them
All: Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven belongs to little children
