Psalm 127:3 says “Children are a heritage from the Lord,” a gift. And what they need more than any toy, gadget, or material possession is our blessing; given through eye contact, an open heart in listening to their concerns great and small, our prayers. 

Happy Feast of St. Ambrose! and special thanks to reader Monica for submitting this very timely quotation for our Monday Morning.
