Children at Mass
Question from Anonymous on 1/25/2014:

In response to LR and Michelle:

Though they do sometimes distract, I try to remember Christs's words in Matthew 19 and not rebuke the parents and the children. "Then some children were brought to Him so that He might lay His hands on them and pray; and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." 15After laying His hands on them, He departed from there." I would rather have the children in the Church with their parents than not there at all.
