I think she is seven year old. Jonah, my son is seven.
She stopped at Jeremiah, my baby, knelt and started playing with him.
Jonah came down running.
He said, “That’s my baby”
She said: “I do not have a baby”. “So, cute… What’s his name?”
“Jeremiah” and Jonah pointed to Joel, “and he is my little brother”.
When Evangelin joined the core, the seven year old girl was in wonder.
“You have a sister too! She wondered and paused a while and said: “I do not have a sister”.
“OK… call your brother, we will play?”
“I do not have brother. I don’t have sister. I just have me. You know I have barbie’s at home.”
“You know, we asked Jesus and he gave us Jeremiah”. “Why don’t you ask Jesus?”
When they started playing, I was wondering the ways in which Holy Spirit worked on Children.
“When the Church speaks of the preferential option for the poor, she does so in light of the Lord’s universal love which was seen precisely in his preference for those who needed him most. It is not an ideological option; neither is it a matter of letting oneself be trapped by a false theory of class struggle as a vehicle of historical change. Love for the poor is something which is born of the Gospel itself and which must not be formulated nor presented in terms of conflict.
In fact, to forestall unacceptable reductionism it is imperative to emphasize that this love for the poor, the marginalized, the sick and the needy of all types is neither exclusive nor excluding. Jesus was born, suffered, died and rose for all people. He came to proclaim divine sonship with the Father, as well as fraternity among all peoples, called to be children in the Son. Therefore nothing is more alien to one who is called to act “in the person of Christ,” than to shorten the universal reach of his mission and his love.” – John Paul II
Every stone, chiseled carefully is a piece of art.
Every child, mentored carefully is a Saint of tomorrow
Crisis is that, parents do not have time for their children
Solution is that, step down from too much worldly things
“You know when your own children lie, When you see off-behavior, catch it early on.
Ask them: What’s in your heart? Hang out with them.
Go for a walk. They will talk to you.
Do this on a regular basis. It will help preclude this kind of stuff.”
If your job is an obstacle to exercise the above steps, then quit that job and earn less. Do not miss a soul. Souls are important than a job.
The strength and honor of the family come above all from within, from union with Christ which gives power to manifest in daily living the beautiful family virtues of patience, energy, generosity, forbearance, cheerfulness, and mutual reverence with their consequent effect of peace and contentment. – Ref# Christ in Home
