Feast of the Holy Innocents

Today is the Feast Day for the Holy Innocents; remembering those children who lost their lives during Herod's attempt to eliminate any rivals after the Magi's announcement of the birth of a King.

This year, the feast has renewed meaning with to the unbelievable lost of life in Newtown, Connecticut.  Children, who lost their lives in the midst of a society that promotes violence in all its forms.  A society where anything goes, except for those who have faith in God and want to live by traditional Christian principals.

May these new saints in heaven pray for peace in their families lives and a renewal of faith throughout the world.
