For 21 May 2016, Saturday of the 7th week of the year, based on Mark 10:13-16
People were bringing little children to Jesus in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, â€œLet the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.â€ And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
