Nourish Children April 10




"It is not enough for Christian parents to nourish only the bodies of their children; even animals do this.

They must also nourish their souls in grace, in virtue, and in God's holy commandments."

St. Catherine of Siena

Such a tender and beautiful portrayal of Jesus with the children--one can just see the great love of Jesus as He looks at the children with Him.

Mary ann - He makes the little ones just want to run to Him. Us "oldies" can wobble a little slower.

Jackie - TY

Diane - Yes, His love shines through...just like that song.

John - Is she one of your favorites?

Dearest Micki,
I miss coming here. I am so happy to let you know that Esther and I are receiving an overwhelming response from women in our diocese to answer the call from Vatican to pray for our priests... What joy!

I love the way Jesus tilts his head as he looks at the children. His face is filled with love for them and it so wonderful to see those children look at him with much longing and love in their hearts for him. Simply beautiful!

Love you, dear Micki, and thank you for this wonderful ministry of sharing God's love and beauty with us through your collection of cards!
