Bethlehem: the way of Spiritual Childhood

God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit that cries,'Abba, Father'!

The Spirit will fashion in the Little Sisters a new heart that:

  • lovingly opens up each day to listen to the Father and
  • humbly responds as a sister to each person they meet.

Spiritual childhood is:

  • the fundamental attitude of a disciple;
  • the result of mature faith;
  • It means self-surrender to the will of God;
  • the joyful confidence of a small child.
- Little Sister Magdeleine of Jesus

This childlike spirit
  • disturbs human logic and
  • stands in opposition to temptations of pride and domination that are at the root of evil and oppression in our world.
