by Fr. Martin Fox about religious education and bringing babies and little children to mass.
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!
