THE CHILD’s GENTLE POWER THAT GENERATES HAPPINESS

“Dear Jesus, make us a happy family.” 

Maricar, a 7yr old girl, offered this prayer in the presence of her mama, papa, older sister, younger brother and the priest whom they invited to have their house blessed. 

The obvious spontaneity in the way this prayer was said reveals the richness and truthfulness of the child’s heart.  Such heart of a child can enrich the hearts which are made impoverished by selfishness and greed, can bring to the melting point the hearts which are made heavy and hardened by pride, can refresh those that have been dried up by hatred and jealousy. 

Thanks for this gift of a child’s heart which brings life back to its richness, grandeur and beauty, making all of us, all families really and constantly happy.

It is in the Child that the secret of a happy life lies.  May we keep HIM in our hearts and make the whole world a stable on which all are happily nourished and made inwardly fulfilled. Amen.
