Christ said, “Fear not, little flock.”

The Catholic Answers

The Church was a little flock at the time Christ spoke, for it was in the seedling stage. But even the vast grown tree can be called a little flock. The Catholic Church is little and despised by worldly-minded men because she consists chiefly of the poor and of the despised. And it is always little in spirit, insisting upon humility in accordance with Christ’s words, “Unless you become as little children you cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.”
