Gospel Reading: MT 19:13-15

“Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them.” (Mt 19: 13)

Jesus had a special love for little children. This is because children in his time were treated with contempt and no one gave them any attention. We see that even the disciples rebuked the people who brought them to Jesus.

What is our attitude to people who are given little respect in our society. Poor people who beg for alms, old people who are sick, people of a low caste. Do we treat them with the respect and dignity due to them as children of a loving God?
