The Holy Innocents

Sometimes this day gets forgotten during the Christmas season. But in this era, where Abortion is so damaging to the innocent, it stands as a sign of how far we still have to go.

For those who don't know what this day remembers, it is when Herod declared that all males under 2 years of age be killed. This was Herods' attempt to kill Christ in order to protect his own throne.

Say a prayer today for all children. Those who die young, those who live and suffer in poverty and those who die unborn. It is also a day to lead a family blesing of your own children. Catholic Culture has the rite on their website

Look for the feast and the blessing is linked to the sidebar.
