Jesus is seen through innocent eyes

A couple of days ago, I posted on Causa Nostrae Laetitiae about Jean Vanier of L'Arche Communities address to the International Eucharistic Congress. It gave me a chance to share some of my favorite stories of Christina recognizing Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Now, I am finding inspiring stories around the blogosphere about these holy innocents and their extraordinary devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist. Ecclesia Domestica has one, Through Jimmy's Eyes, and Loving Sophia has another, "Every Good and Perfect Gift".

I can't help but feel that Our Lord is teaching us something here. . ."and a little child shall lead them".

Hi Leticia, thanks for stopping by my blog. I have a sister, ten years younger than me who has down syndrome (she's 20), and also a teenage brother who has downs as well. I remember from childhood going to physical therapy with my sister, and also the fact that she didn't walk until three, potty trained later, etc. But, mostly I remember how much we all adored her (and still do).

Thanks for sharing this, Ginny, I love to hear from those who have been blessed by a family member with enhanced chromosomes.

Hi Leticia,

What a beautiful story that first one was. Thank you for sharing.

Unfortunately the second link, "Every Good and Perfect Gift" points back to the post about Jimmy.
