Let the Children Come Close to Me Order of Jesus?

Let the Children Come Close to Me Order of Jesus?

When Jesus was among men with a human figure, he gave us many teachings and also rubbed shoulders with all kinds of people due to his simplicity and humility of heart. He also liked to be with everyone, that’s where his phrase comes from: let the children come to me.

Let the children come to me

This phrase let the children come to me is very famous in Jesus and is established in the Gospel of Saint Mark 10, 13-16.

Everything happened because in those days people approached Jesus with some children so that they could touch him, however the disciples did not want this to happen and prevented it. Seeing what was happening, Jesus himself became upset and said:

“Let the children come to me and do not prevent them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like them.” And she went on to say: “I tell you the truth, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will not be able to enter it.”

After what had happened, he took the children in his arms and proceeded to bless them, laying his hands on them. All this is the Word of the Lord. We must meditate on what Jesus wants to teach us with this message, we try to fill ourselves with his word and wisdom to understand and apply in our lives what he wants us to do.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Christ our King. Thy kingdom come!

preparatory prayer

My vocation, my mission, my call… all for you, Lord, to give you glory.

Let us meditate on what God shows us through the Gospel

Jesus is there, preaching, teaching us about the mercy of his Father, about the beauty of the world, about the wonderful. We can put the following example while Jesus is speaking, a child approaches him and asks him in an insolent way: why do you come to bother?. Such a child turns around, and when we see his face, we realize that it is us.

That child that each one of us has inside has surfaced and has told Jesus how we treated him badly, with what lack of respect we have imprisoned him before the eyes of others, how many times it has happened to us that we need to give up our ideas as a child for fear that others think differently.

It is then when Jesus observes us and with only his gaze tells us everything, he is disappointed that we have left him, that child was excited and did not allow it to manifest itself; the child himself was happy with what he saw, he felt joy in things as simple as candy, he observed the wonder in a kitten, in the rain, in the birds, etc.

Sometimes it is difficult to be grown up, and we regret not being able to be as a child, to enjoy without anyone telling us that it is strange, weird, laugh at everything, play with whatever we have at hand and be able to share a caress with whoever needs it.

The bad thing is that we can’t see him with the same sensitivity, the memories are lost little by little, we no longer see many of the things that can be right or wrong, and the worst thing is that I can’t talk to him like I used to.

Let us ask him and turn to him: “Let me speak to you as before, Lord, without being afraid of what others say to me, without fear of what they think of me; just let me abandon myself in your loving arms like a child in its mother’s arms”.

In the Gospel we are taught of the affection with which Jesus welcomed children, carrying them in his arms and blessing them since he himself maintained that: «of those who are like them belongs to the kingdom of heaven». And the strongest words of Jesus are precisely for those who scandalize the little ones:

“It would be better if a millstone were hung around his neck and he was thrown to the bottom of the sea.”

Therefore, we must dedicate ourselves to the protection of the dignity of children with love, tenderness and equally with great determination, fighting at all times with the forces against that culture of separation of today that is manifested in many ways to the detriment of all of the most dispossessed, weak and vulnerable, as we know that they are precisely the minors.

Dialogue with Christ

We must have a direct dialogue with Christ as the most important part of the prayer or conversation with Christ. We must prepare ourselves to converse with him with much love and keep in mind that he is a God of love towards all his children.


At this point, as the title says, it is our private moment with him to propose a personal purpose.

We must put into practice every teaching that God gives us and above all listen carefully to the children who come to me, just as Christ himself would do.


We thank you, Lord, for all your benefits, blessings to all your children who love you, you who live and queen forever and ever. Amen.

Christ our King!

Thy kingdom come!

Prudent Virgin, Mary, Mother of the Church.

Pray for us.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


Although this article is quite brief, it is no less true to observe the wonderful message that Jesus Christ himself shows us. That is why we must be like his children and feel loved, protected by a Father who is all love with all his children. For this reason, let us always keep Jesus present in our lives and that love he professes for us, and let us learn to live like his children and let us embrace and guide him.
