The Seven-Year-Old Who Doesn’t Ask for Toys, But Jesus

The Seven-Year-Old Who Doesn’t Ask for Toys, But Jesus December 21, 2012

Christmas gratitude to those who preserved and shared this letter from a young Joseph Ratzinger:

Dear Baby Jesus, quickly come down to earth. You will bring joy to children. Also bring me joy.

According to translations in the news, he wrote:

I would like a Volks-Schott (a Mass prayers book), green clothing for Mass (clerical clothing) and a heart of Jesus. I will always be good. Greetings from Joseph Ratzinger

That’s a good commercial for having the Sacred Heart image in one’s home. Look where it can take a child … straight to a life resting in His love, replacing our hearts with His.
