Gospel: Matthew 18:1-5, 10, 12-14
At that time, the disciples came to Jesus and asked him, “Who is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven?” Then Jesus called a little child, set the child in the midst of the
disciples, and said, “I assure you, that, unless you change, and become like little children,

you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble, like this child, is the greatest in
the kingdom of heaven, and whoever receives such a child, in my name, receives me. See that you do
not despise any of these little ones; for I tell you, their angels in heaven continually see the face of
my heavenly Father.

What do you think of this? If someone has a hundred sheep and one of them strays, won’t he leave
the ninetynine on the hillside, and go to look for the stray one? And I tell you, when he finally finds it,
he is more pleased about it, than about the ninety-nine that did not go astray. It is the same with your
Father in heaven. Your Father in heaven doesn’t want even one of these little ones to perish.

Reflection:

Darwinian theory has taught us that evolution became possible through the dynamics of the survival of
the fittest. The weak, the sick, and the little in every species were hung out to dry, while evolution favored
the strong, the healthy, the powerful. And, thus the evolution has reached the level of the human species,
where a qualitative shift has taken place: in humans, evolution has become conscious of itself. Is there a
further evolution? There must be! However, every attempt by this conscious evolution to favor the strong,
the healthy, and the powerful has only served us to evolve backwards! Perhaps the next level of evolution,
which seems to be towards greater spiritualization, must embrace the reverse of the principleof the
survival of the fittest. It must embrace the survival of the weakest. The spiritual evolution can only work
along the dynamics of kenosis, which Christ has modelled for us (cf.Phil. 2: 4-11) and teaches us today
by the example of a little child.
