Let the little children come to me - Fritz von Uhde

A painting in realist style of Jesus with children, in the dress contemporary to the painter

Geoff Wheaton SJ leads us through a reflection on this painting based on a scene from Matthew 18:1-5, 10 in which Jesus asks us to be more like children.

Choose one of the children . . . what do you want to say to Jesus? ... As we grow older, our innocence disappears, but the Lord is telling us we have to rediscover that state of loving, forgiving kindness to all.
