from the Gospel of Mark:
The people were bringing young children to Him that He might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw that, He became indignant and said to them, "Let the children come to Me, and do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a little child will not enter it." Then He picked them up in His arms, laid hands on them, and blessed them.
