A great homily

A great homily

by Fr. Martin Fox about religious education and bringing babies and little children to mass.
An excerpt:

When your children were newborns,
did you talk to them? Or, did you wait
until they would understand the words?
I�m sure you didn�t wait!

They “get” it before they “get” it.

Your children are never “too young”
to be with you;
how can they be “too young”
to be with Jesus at Mass?

An infant in her father�s arms
feels the heartbeat, hears a familiar voice,
singing or speaking:
that child connects, apart from intellect.

And all of us are no more than infants
in God�s arms, in our understanding
of the reality that happens at Mass!
