This is so beautiful! 😭
Instagram user Miraculous Revival posted an amazing video of a child reacting to an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
As the baby cries, the parent hands her an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She immediately stops crying, smiles, and touches Jesus’ face.

The user says the baby is only 13 months old, does not yet know Jesus, and yet the image of His Sacred Heart soothes her immediately.
“You can clearly see the love she has for Jesus. That’s because it’s innate,” Miraculous Revival wrote. “She knows him. You can hear it in her sighs of relief. And how she strokes His face.”

Here’s the text of the post:
“I’ll probably keep replaying this. And crying each time. / My baby just turned 13 months old. / I didn’t teach her about Jesus. / She can’t talk or understand more than a few words. / She doesn’t know scripture. Or all the prayers.
“Yet you can clearly see the love she has for Jesus. / That’s because it’s innate. / She KNOWS him. / You can hear it in her sighs of relief. And how she strokes His face.

“God created us with a natural love and desire for Him. / To see it so clearly in a baby is incredibly humbling. / Jesus wants us to be childlike for a reason.
“May we all seek comfort and peace in Him. Without conditions. Without complications. Without reservation. Without hesitations.
“But Jesus called the children to him and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’ (Luke 18:16)”.
Here’s how some people responded:
One Instagram user said, “This reminds me of the time when I was an early childhood specialist and we had a little boy who would not stop crying. I asked his mother to give us a picture of her, his mother, and she gave us an 8” plastic replica of our Blessed Mother. That was mother to her. And they were Pakistani, so I as even more flabbergasted.”
Another user commented, “So precious!! Our fourth baby’s first word was Jesus. She loved the crucifix in her room. She would just stare, smiling. It was the sweetest.”
One Instagram user added, “Am in love 🥰. Your words are true and how easy it is to be a child and love our Lord.. hence I am trying to teach myself to love him as one because we are his children. ❤️”
