St. Camillus de Lellis

Matthew 11:25-27

When Jesus calls his disciples to embrace the simple faith of the “childlike,” he is not saying that our approach to faith should be “dumbed down” to the level of children.  He is calling us, instead, to embrace a faith that is centered in the love of God: love that is not compromised by self-interest and rationalization, love that is not measured but given completely and unreservedly without limit or condition. Christ is asking us to embrace a faith that is simple, pure and honest and not complicated and compromised by “adult” stuff.
