Holy Innocents

Monday, December 28, AD 2015

A voice in Rama was heard, lamentation and great mourning; Rachel bewailing her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. 

Matthew 2:18

Herod’s murder of the Holy Innocents is remembered on this feast day of the Holy Innocents.  The video below is a moving depiction of this horrendous crime from the film Jesus of Nazareth

Herod ordered this massacre in a futile attempt to stop the Light of the World from completing His mission of salvation.  In our day Holy Innocents are slaughtered each and every day in an ultimately futile attempt to deny what Christ taught:  that we are all brothers and sisters and that we must love God and love one another.  Some day this modern Herod emulation that goes by the name of legal abortion will cease, and the feast day of the Holy Innocents is a very good day for us to resolve to work unceasingly to bring that day closer.

  • If Herod were a sovereign person , this massacre of innocent children would not have happened and would not have been foretold in Scripture.
    Roe v. Wade, the abortion decision assumed that the unborn child was not a person. There was no proof to uphold this assumption. The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is not in Roe. v. Wade. Roe v. Wade is miscarriage of Justice and the imposition of atheism, denying the metaphysical human soul, the free will and conscience, making beasts of all men.
    Corbinian’s bear prayed in public, but American citizens are prohibited from praying in the public square that belongs to all men in joint and common tenancy.

  • “If Herod were a sovereign person… ” I don’t know your meaning Mary. Are you meaning if he was a Christian? as in
    Galatians 4:3
    “So with us; while we were minors, we were enslaved to the elemental spirits* of the world. 4But when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5in order to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as children. 6And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our* hearts, crying, ‘Abba!* Father!’ 7So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God.*
    8 Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to beings that by nature are not gods.
