One Such Child
Yesterday morning when I read next Sunday's Gospel (Mark 9:30-37) the first image that came to me was that of the dead body of the three year old migrant boy washed ashore on the Turkish coast. In the Gospel Jesus says, "Whoever receives one such little child in my name receives me."
On further reflection I thought of Jesus living in children waited to be adopted. I thought of Jesus living in the children of our relatives and friends who may still seem lost.
