II.
PAUL IN ROME.
AMONG the Christians who went out upon the Ap-
pian Way to meet Paul, to welcome and comfort him,
was a man of the name of Martialis. All the brethren
of the faith could relate of him, that which follows.
His parents lived in the land of Judah, beyond the
Jordan. One day, came Jesus with his disciples into
that region ; and as usual much people assembled to hear
the words of the Galilean Master. Jesus spoke this time
of the sanctity of the marriage tie, and of the love that
makes home the dwelling-place of God. When the
mothers who were among his listeners heard this, they
pressed forvvard with their children, that He should bless
them. Among the women was the mother of Martialis.
Softly pushing her son before her, she stood pale and im-
ploring before the Saviour, who read in her look that
she wished on the head of her boy to bring a blessing
into her house. The disciples signed her to be gone.
She was about to yield ; but Jesus said: "Suffer little
children to come unto me and forbid them not ; for of
such is the kingdom of God." And he took the boy in
his arms, laid his hands upon his locks in blessing, and
said to those standing by: **
Whosoever shall not receive
the kingdom of God as a little child, shall in no wise enter
therein."
