Ex ore infantium

Overheard in adoration room:

A mother teaching her son how to pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Boy was excitedly praying aloud, ‘Dear God, please make my 哥哥’s injury better. Dear God, please make him study faster so that he can play with me.’

Overheard a few years back in church:

Little boy to little girl, ‘A boy cannot marry a boy, a girl cannot marry a girl, that is just weird!’

Out of the mouth of infants and of sucklings thou hast perfected praise, because of thy enemies, that thou mayst destroy the enemy and the avenger.


Ex ore infantium et lactantium perfecisti laudem propter inimicos tuos ut destruas inimicum et ultorem – Psalm 8:2
