Gospel text (Mk 10:13-16): People were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these (...).” Then he embraced the children and blessed them, placing his hands on them. People were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “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.” Then he embraced the children and blessed them, placing his hands on 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?
