Today Mother Church remembers the innocent lives of the children slaughtered by King Herod in the hopes of killing of “the king”. It is a sad day in Salvation History and rather than me try to offer some enlightenment, I’d rather just take some time today and reflect on the sorrow the parents must have endured having their children pulled away from them; how blessed I am to have my 8 “children” – I’ll spend some time in prayer thanking God for that blessing.
Do something great for our Lord today – tell your children you love them.
God’s will, not mine, be done.
Be not afraid; just have faith.
Jesus, I trust in You.
