“Blessed be the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”

— Matthew 5:9

Child Sitting and Playing

Jesus knew that, as we age into adulthood, we tend to lose that innocence of childhood that keeps us pure and lacking in duplicity. He cautioned His disciples to resist growing old in spirit.

We find these beautiful children of Chimbote around the Center for Social Works. Or deep in the barrios when we travel with the Home Visit teams to bring Christ’s healing love to those who are too ill and feeble to even get to Clinic.

 

This week, let us pray we can daily be more like these little ones. It is through their innocence and purity of heart that they find favor with God. Dear Blessed Mary, Madre de Dios, teach us their simplicity, humility and love of your Son.
