For the sake of one child...
Children are so precious and have so much to teach us! I often watch children being taken out for a walk by a grandparent and there is such mutual love between them; the grandparent is so caring and loving and the child so happy and trusting. It is a meditation just to watch them. It also is sad to see today so many children without loving parents; so many are being shifted from one foster home to another. I think we need to pray that every child will meet someone who loves them. How will they get to know how much God loves them if they do not experience human love here?
I am trying to do too much today so this will be my only reflection, I think. Jesus told us to become as a little child. He wants us to trust, to feel loved, to be happy! St. Madeleine Sophie said that she would have founded the Society of the Sacred Heart for the sake of one child!
