  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 19:13-15)
In Today’s Gospel the parents who brought their children to Jesus, wanted Jesus to put his hands upon them. They knew of the curative power, both physical and religious, which came from Jesus' touch. Jesus, in turn, scolded his disciples for hindering the children from coming. The disciples very likely wanted to protect Jesus from the nuisance of noisy children. But Jesus pleased in the children and confirmed that God's love has ample room for everyone, including children. No one is insignificant to God. He comes to each person independently and uniquely that he might touch them with his healing love and power. Do we show kindness to the youth we encounter in our neighborhood, home, and church and do we pray for them that they may cultivate in the knowledge and wisdom of Jesus Christ?
