Faith Explained (Insights from a 4-Year Old)

Upon seeing a shrine of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, my 4-year old son, suddenly asked:  "Mommy, why is Jesus so high up there?... is it because He is saving the world?"

I was speechless but awed at the simple yet, meaningful way a child captured the very essence of salvation. Not many of us see Christ the way my son did.

Whenever we talk about faith, let's make sure that it is spoken from the pure and innocent heart of a child.  Let us not lose that child-like faith and wonder.

And in times we strive to find hope in the midst of such a chaotic world, let us look to Christ...  for only He can save the world.  


  1. What a great question from your son. He has it right doesn't he!
