.- The head of the bishops’ committee on the family in Mexico recently stated that children are the country’s greatest treasure.

Bishop Francisco Javier Chavolla Ramos of Toluca, Mexico emphasized that the little ones are loved by Christ and the Church.

The bishop’s words came in a message for Children’s day, celebrated on May 2 in Mexico. He recalled the words of Jesus who said it is necessary to become like children in order to enter the Kingdom of God. 
Children are the most precious treasure of the country, he continued, and they must be embraced with the same attitude of welcome and love that Jesus had for them. 
“With the help of their parents and of all those who love them,” children should grow in age, wisdom and grace before God, “as Jesus did.” The bishop urged children to raise their voices in prayer for all the families of Mexico and the world, “so that our heavenly Father will fill us with blessings and give us the gift of his peace.
