Commentary on the Gospel of
We have to break through the midst of many things in order to become adult Christians. Many people, even in the Church, will try to keep us in a pre-adult state. Childhood as a complete ideal doesn’t work for most people. Yes, Jesus said we must be like children; we must have their qualities of simplicity, honesty, and freshness. “Like children,” he said. We must be adults who are like children, not children who are like adults.
