What an incredible privilege to be entrusted with the soul of a child! Not only is this little soul eternal, but even while its time on earth it may affect the world for years and touch the souls of others.
"A man is not saved against his will, but he is made willing by the operation of the Holy Ghost. A mighty grace which he does not wish to resist enters into the man, disarms him, makes a new creature of him, and he is saved.
