Catholic Bible Stories
by Josephine Van Dyke Brownson, 1922

"Once more Jesus is surrounded by a crowd. They have been asking Him questions, and now He is watching a group of women bringing their children for Him to bless. The Apostles are angry when they see them, for they do not want to be interrupted, and they turn to the women and tell them to take their babies home and not to bother the Master. But Jesus hears them and will not let them send the children away, for he loves them especially, and He says to the Apostles; " Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come to Me: for the Kingdom of Heaven is for such." (Matt. 19:14.) Taking the children in His arms, He blesses them whilst the Apostles are surprised to see Him show them such love."--Page 135
