This Sunday is the 25th in Ordinary Time. In the Gospel reading Jesus picks up a little child and teaches that whoever welcomes a child welcomes him. To receive the blessings of God more fully we need to have the simplicity and openness of little children, who can teach us so much.Click here for the Scripture Readings.
