Spoken by Children (2)

God gets along more easily with small children, because the little ones have roomier souls. With grown-ups, there is such a congestion of bad things in their soul that there is hardly any place to sit. (Pavel MARTÎN, 3rd grade, 9 years and 11 months)

If our Lord Jesus Christ showed up here now, I would ask Him if He can take me to His Mother, to ask Her how it is to have God as a child. (Alina Andreea ZANE, 2nd grade, 8 years old)

The Bible is the way to read love. (Robert Felician HORTEA, 8th grade, 14 years and 1 month)

The measure of prayer is to pray without measure, because prayer is good – therefore, it doesn’t hurt anyone to do good endlessly. (Adrian IONIŢĂ, 4th grade, 10 years old)

There are no good deeds if when we do them we don’t think about God, because those who say that they will do good deeds to people – those are only election deeds. (Adrian IONIŢĂ, 4th grade, 10 years old)

If they say that “God is a good servant, but a poor master”, then I am to understand that only then can the body know how to serve you better, when you don’t allow it to become your boss. (Paul PĂUN, 4th grade, 12 years and 2 months)

Monasticism is the braveness of the soul over one’s body. The others want to live the other way round. (Iulia GHIŢĂ, 15 years and 4 months)

St. Teophan says we shouldn’t mourn and cry much when someone dies; I believe the same thing, because the man who died will have a much better life over there, than us. The dead man should be the one to cry for us, because he’s left us here, in a bad situation compared to them. (Adrian IONIŢĂ, 4th grade, 10 years and 4 months)

Religion is important because it is the mind of the good man. (Teodor ZAICA, 2nd grade, 8 years and a month)

The man who wants more than he has is someone who has gathered a lot and has this disease – of wanting more. And he’s more pitiable than the beggar, because the beggar can never have enough money to buy this disease. (Domnica Ioana ZAMFIRESCU, 3rd grade, 10 years and 4 months)
