St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross,
Pray for us
Matthew 18:1-5,10,12-14


Matthew’s Jesus hammers home his conviction that greatness in the kingdom of heaven does not hinge on rank or status but on childlikeness. In his society children did not possess any inherent value; they were dependent on others. For Matthew, this is the quality that believers should have toward their God.
