Innocence

Curiosity and wonder come naturally when I feel safe and secure.

My prayer

Lover of all children, may I value and honor the child that lives within me. May my love for her deepen my love for all children.

Biblical touchstones

  • Jesus called a child, whom he put among them, and said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:2-4
  • Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Matthew 19:14
  • Then Jesus took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:36

Invitation to prayer

Search inside yourself for a place of innocence. Resist all attempts to distance yourself from it, or to judge it. Simply enjoy it.
