Today, December 28th, our Church remembers the Holy Innocents who died due to the fear and rage of Herod. He feared a rival king. A child was born, Jesus, who was a king but in such a different way. Jesus is not to be feared. He is to be adored and praised and listened to! A heavy price was paid by the children and families of those who felt Herod’s violence. Can we remember their sacrifice today? Do we help children and their families in need? Will we hear the cry – their cry – in today world? Many suffer – and we are the hands and feet of Christ today. Let’s us pray and serve the children in need today.
