A Welcome for Children
“God has no difficulty in being understood by children and children have no trouble in understanding God. It isn’t by chance that in the Gospels, Jesus speaks beautiful and strong words about the ‘little ones’. This term indicates all persons who depend on the help of others, particularly children.
Children, therefore, are a treasure for humanity and also for the Church because they constantly remind us of the necessary condition for entering into the Kingdom of God : that we must not consider ourselves self-sufficient, but in need of help, of love, and of forgiveness.”
Jesus Welcomes our Children
This Sunday, Jesus welcomes young ch ildren of Emly parish to receive Him and his love in Holy Communion, for the first time. It’s a day of joy.
For their school based preparation, we the Principal and Staff, and in particular their Class teacher, Mrs. Anita Hurley. For their parish based preparation, we thank the planning group of the Do This in Memory
programme – Anne Power, Shúin Slattery and Simon Breen. For home based preparation, we thank parents, grandparents and godparents.
