Mark 10: 2 – 16 “Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.”
In this week’s Gospel, we look at how Jesus would have opposed the 15th Century proverb ‘children should be seen and not heard’, as demonstrated in this week’s Gospel. Jesus welcomes children despite others trying to keep them away. Jesus commends the open-heartedness of children, which is explored in this assembly through an interactive film about how trusting God can lead to peaceful, loving decisions.
Our mission this week:
This week we enter into October – a month dedicated to the Holy Rosary. It’s a reminder that we can look to Mary not only as an example, but also as a friend who prays with us when we need her the most. Think about who you want to pray for at the moment and take some time this week to come to pray with Mary.
