For Children

Jesus said, "Let the children come to Me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 19:14

May the Blessed Virgin, who had the joy of bringing and holding in her arms the Son of God made a Child, of seeing Him grow in wisdom, age, and grace before God and man, 2 help each one [of us] to endow his personal efforts on behalf of little children with active goodness, an attractive example, and self-giving love.

[The Pope Speaks 39/3, 1994,169]
