(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) participated in a press event on the “Build Back Better Act” in front of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, where she quoted from the Gospel of Matthew.

“Not this past Sunday, but the Sunday before this one, the Gospel was about the children in the Catholic Church,” said Pelosi.

“It was about the children,” she said. “And it talked about the Pharisees–hypocrites that they were--the Pharisees in long robes saying that children of divorced parents and all the rest were not as worthy as other children.

“And that's when Christ said, ‘Suffer little children to come unto me,’” said Pelosi. “All children–all children in our country are about our country's future. And we want to make sure that all children have the opportunity that they deserve.

“They're all blessings containing their spark of divinity,” said Pelosi.

Here is a transcript from the part of Pelosi’s presentation in front of the Capitol where she quoted from the Gospel of Matthew 19:14:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Not this past Sunday, but the Sunday before this one, the Gospel was about the children in the Catholic Church.  It was about the children.  And it talked about the Pharisees – hypocrites that they were, the Pharisees in long robes saying that children of divorced parents and all the rest were not as worthy as other children.  And that's when Christ said, ‘Suffer little children to come unto me.’  All children – all children in our country are about our country's future.  And we want to make sure that all children have the opportunity that they deserve.  They're all blessings containing their spark of divinity.  

“Now, Galen, he – one time he came and spoke, Galen Carey, from the Evangelicals.  One time he came and spoke to us when we were having a hearing on immigration.  And he said – because I want to talk about immigrant children, too, because these are some that need to be taken care of.  He said at that time, he said, that the U.S. – ‘the United States refugee resettlement program is the crown jewel of American humanitarianism.’  You remember saying that? 

“It was so beautiful that I quote him all the time.  All the time, all these years later.  That was when the President was doing the Muslim Ban – you remember that, Galen.  And, again, all of the children – this constant reinvigoration of America, that these children, children are. 

“So, I thank all of you for bringing your values.  And, that's – when I talk about Joe Biden, it's his values that drive him in this regard.  It's his faith that makes him believe that it can happen.  It's the hope that he gives the rest of us, because of the love that we all have for the children.”
