In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 11, Jesus tells how the Father has revealed things hidden from the wise and the learned to the childlike. I've always noticed that there are usually more women than men at Mass in churches all around the world ~ perhaps men are less likely to become childlike? Anyway, before the Lord this is the attitude to assume. You may already be wise and learned, but you can still be childlike. Realize that when we go before the Lord, all our intelligence and knowledge don't count at all ~ we must start over by becoming empty and receptive like a child. This is the secret of entering God.
