13 And they brought to him the little children, so that he might touch them. But the disciples admonished those who brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw this, he took offense, and he said to them: "Allow the little ones to come to me, and do not prohibit them. For of such as these is the kingdom of God.
15 Amen I say to you, whoever will not accept the kingdom of God like a little child, will not enter into it."
16 And embracing them, and laying his hands upon them, he blessed them.
13 Is any of you sad? Let him pray. Is he even-tempered? Let him sing psalms.
14 Is anyone ill among you? Let him bring in the priests of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
15 And a prayer of faith will save the infirm, and the Lord will alleviate him. And if he has sins, these will be forgiven him.
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be saved. For the unremitting prayer of a just person prevails over many things.
17 Elijah was a mortal man like us, and in prayer he prayed that it would not rain upon the earth. And it did not rain for three years and six months.
18 And he prayed again. And the heavens gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
19 My brothers, if anyone of you strays from the truth, and if someone converts him,
20 he ought to know that whoever causes a sinner to be converted from the error of his ways will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
