The Pope asserted that “in order to understand God’s love, this smallness of heart is necessary”. Jesus clearly said so: if you don’t become as children, you won’t enter the kingdom of heaven. This, then, is the right path: “to make yourselves children, make yourselves small”, because “only in this smallness, in this humbling” can God’s love be received.
It isn’t by chance, Pope Francis observed, that when the Lord, “explains his relationship of love”, he speaks “as if speaking to a child”. And sure enough, God “reminds the people” ‘remember, I taught you to walk as a father does with his child’”. This is exactly like “that daddy to child” relationship. However, he explained, “if you aren’t small” that relationship can’t be established.
And it’s a relationship that leads “the Lord, in love with us”, to use “even words that sound like a lullaby”. The Lord states in the Scripture: “Fear not, you worm of Israel, fear not!”. And he pampers us, telling us: “I am with you, I hold your hand”.
This “is the Lord’s tenderness in his love, this is what he communicates to us. And he gives power to our tenderness”. However, the Pope cautioned, “if we feel strong, we will never experience caresses as beautiful as the Lord’s”.
The “words of the Lord”, the Pontiff continued, allow us to “understand that mysterious love that he has for us”. Jesus himself tells us how: when he speaks about himself, he says he is “gentle and humble of heart”. For this reason “even he, the Son of God, humbles himself to receive the Father’s love”.
