Feast of Saint Paula of Saint Joseph of Calasanz

Good morning. In the Gospel for this Saturday morning we hear from Jesus about the need to be more childlike. He says: “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.” As parents there is a lesson to be learned. Yes, our children have a lesson to offer us, a lesson of humility. Children are wonderful examples to us adults of humility. The thoughts and intentions of children are free of pretensions; their prayers are pure and simple. Children are playful and creative. There is much we can learn from our children. Imagine if married couples interacted with one another as children. Imagine, if you will, looking at one another with a child’s eye, and asking questions of one another without reservation, and exploring each other with a sense of not knowing. Make a great day!

Today we recall the good life, gifts and works of Saint Paula of Saint Joseph of Calasanz.
