This week we read from the books of Matthew and Mark. Most of us have heard the comforting passage about when Jesus told the disciples to let the children come to him. It's always encouraging to see Jesus invite ALL to be with him. Sometimes it's hard to imagine who ALL are. The other passage from Matthew challenges us to embrace all those that we encounter in the name of Jesus. He welcomes all, so should we, even if those people require some 'extra grace'. It's something we all need to work on. Praise be to God that He continues to instruct, guide, and forgive us in this! Try to read these daily with the family. The passages certainly fortify us as we go out into the world and meet all of our neighbors.
