December 28 - Holy Innocents
Herod was afraid of being replaced on the throne by the new king, whom the Magi had come to paid tribute. Not knowing exactly who Jesus was, Herod ordered all children under the age of two to be killed in order to ensure that the new king would also disappeared. Joseph and Mary had escaped to Egypt with the child but many innocent babies died. In our times there are still many innocent babies dying throughout the world.
How do we defend them? What does it means for you to be innocent?
