A quote from Pope Francis:

“God has no difficulty in being understood by children and children have no trouble in understanding God. it isn’t by chance that in the Gospels, Jesus speaks beautiful and strong words about the ‘little ones.’ This term indicates all persons who depend on the help of others, particularly children. Children, therefore, are a treasure for humanity and also for the Church because they constantly remind us of the necessary condition for entering into the Kingdom of God: that we must not consider ourselves self-sufficient, but in need of help, of love, and of forgiveness.”
