R° Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests. Lk 2,14.
Jesus, who made you so Little? Love!  St. Bernard
V° Let whoever is little, come to me!...Prov 9,4
Like a shepherd he gathers the lambs, carrying them in his bosom. As a mother comforts her son, so I will comfort you, I will carry you in my arms and will fondle you in my lap. Isaiah 40,11 and 66, 13,12.
As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on the faithful. As far as the east is removed from the west, so far have our sins been removed from us. Merciful and gracious is the Lord, slow to anger, abounding in kindness. Pss 103, 13,12,8.
For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my sister, my brother and my Mother. Mt 12,50.
Father, those whom you gave me, you loved them even as you loved me. Jn 17, 24,23.
