Pope's quotes: Children have much to teach us

A quote from Pope Francis:

"Children, who have no problem in understanding God, have much to teach us: they tell us that He accomplishes great things in those who put up no resistance to Him, who are simple and sincere, without duplicity. The Gospel shows us how great wonders are accomplished with small things: with a few loaves and two fishes, with a tiny mustard seed, with a grain of wheat that dies in the earth, with the gift of just a single glass of water, with the two coins of a poor widow, with the humility of Mary, the servant of the Lord."

— Holy Mass at Meskhi Stadium in Tbilisi, Georgia, Oct. 1, 2016
