LIKE A CHILD (ST ALPHONSE DE LIGUORI)

If anyone is like a child, let him come to me’, says our Mother, to draw us to her feet.

Little children have

always their mother’s name

on their lips,

and, at the least appearance of danger,

in all their fears,

one hears them cry:

‘Mother! Mother!’

Ah! most gentle and loving Mother, Holy Virgin Mary,

this is what you would have us do also.

You wish that,

like little children,

we should implore your help in all our perils,

that we

should have recourse to you unceasingly,

for you wish to succour

and save us,

as you have happily saved all your children,

who have had recourse to you.

(J S 1905)
