The Child of God!

Fr. Ralph related the story about a little boy who wanted to receive Holy Communion. He kept on inserting in the queue even if his parents had prodded him a few times not to. When the line was gone, he still stood there waiting for his host. So Fr. Ralph went up the altar to get a host that is not consecrated yet. Then he gave it to the boy. He whispered “Soon you will receive Jesus”. The boy finally sat on his seat between his parents. From the corner of his eye, Fr. Ralph saw the little boy look at the host and put it near his heart. Then Fr. Ralph reminded us that we must become like little children in wanting God. Are you like a child in wanting God in your life? Me, guilty! Too many logic. Must make my way to become a true child of God again.
