Liturgical day: Saturday 7th in Ordinary Time

Gospel text (Mk 10,13-16): People were bringing their little children to Jesus to have him touch them, and the disciples rebuked them for this. When Jesus noticed it, He was very angry and said, «Let the children come to me and don't stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these (...) ». Then He took the children in his arms and laying his hands on them, blessed them People were bringing their little children to Jesus to have him touch them, and the disciples rebuked them for this. When Jesus noticed it, He was very angry and said, «Let the children come to me and don't stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it». Then He took the children in his arms and laying his hands on them, blessed them.

Today, after talking about marriage, people bring some children to Jesus. But the disciples rebuked them, so they would not bother the Lord. But Jesus Christ welcomed them with love and cuddled them: to go to Heaven we have to be small and humble like them.

-Jesus is loving and friendly. Do you love as a child loves?
