Like a child in His sight: MARK 10:2–16
“Let the little children come to me”. This request of Jesus came home forcefully to me at the baptism of my twin grandnephews recently. There they were, surrounded by family and friends full of love for them, willing to do everything they needed to grow and become mature human beings. They were signed with the Cross and offered to Jesus for Him to bless them.
It was easy to become sentimental about children at these moments but when one of them began to bawl down the church and would not stop, I realised that caring for children is no easy task.
