Let the children come to me and do not try to stop them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as they.  I tell you whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.


(Luke 18:16-17)













Devotion to the Saints is

a fading value among us.

It has become

badly declassé.

For it seems to many

so terribly naive in his age

of theological sophistication

to turn to persons who,

when they lived on earth.

more often than not passed for

mere peasants or simple folk.

What can such people


to us?


They can lead us to God!


For all their littleness,

or perhaps,

because of it,

they can speak to us of God

with very great impact.


we have dismissed the saints

too hastily

from our faith experience.

Perhaps we believe

they are beneath our notice;

they are unhelpful to modern man.


And yet,

they may be saying

to us

the very things

we have to hear.
