the little ones
Jesus tells us something profound in the readings today. when you consider that He says that anyone who welcomes a little child welcomes Him, He is telling us that when we defend the lives of little ones, we are defending His life. what we do to the least of our little brothers, we do to Him. Whether we are protecting children from being abused or sold into the sex trade, finding homes for orphans, or protecting the lives of the unborn, we are fighting for those who are least among us. for those who cannot speak for themselves. and Jesus says that when we do that, we are fighting for God Himself.
God, please show me how to fight for the lives of these little ones. and please give me courage to do what you ask!
