THE RESOURCEFUL KID…
who found a way to steal a kiss and an embrace from the Pope! Kids are imaginative and resourceful…and this one just got the most memorable moment of his childhood captured by the lens and bound to be remembered throughout his lifetime.
The advantages of being little, not only in worldy affairs but also in the spiritual life… St. Therese of Lisieux considered herself small, very small and found the solution to soar high: Jesus’ arms which she calls her “elevator”. St. Josemaria calls it spiritual childhood and gives the advice:
“Be a little child; the greatest daring is always that of children Who cries for… the moon? Who is blind to dangers in getting what he wants?
To such a child add much grace from God, the desire to do his Will, great love for Jesus, all the human knowledge he is capable of acquiring, and you will have a likeness of the apostles of today such as God undoubtedly wants them (The Way, n. 857).”
