Feast, The Holy Innocents

December 28, 2006
Feast, The Holy Innocents

1 JOHN 1:5-2:2
Beloved: This is the message that we have heard from Jesus Christ and
proclaim to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.
If we say, "We have fellowship with him," while we continue to walk
in darkness, we lie and do not act in truth. But if we walk in the
light as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with one another,
and the Blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from all sin. If we say,
"We are without sin," we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in
us. If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and just and will
forgive our sins and cleanse us from every wrongdoing. If we say, "We
have not sinned," we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. My
children, I am writing this to you so that you may not commit sin. But
if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ
the righteous one. He is expiation for our sins, and not for our sins
only but for those of the whole world.

MATTHEW 2:13-18
When the magi had departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to
Joseph in a dream and said, "Rise, take the child and his mother,
flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to
search for the child to destroy him." Joseph rose and took the child
and his mother by night and departed for Egypt. He stayed there until
the death of Herod, that what the Lord had said through the prophet
might be fulfilled, Out of Egypt I called my son. When Herod realized
that he had been deceived by the magi, he became furious. He ordered
the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years
old and under, in accordance with the time he had ascertained from the
magi. Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the
prophet: A voice was heard in Ramah, sobbing and loud lamentation;
Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled, since
they were no more.

Each age in history has its own Herod - people who would not stop at
any extreme to safeguard their own personal kingdoms. If they cannot
vanquish Christ and Christian values in a free and open intellectual or
spiritual confrontation, then they would use any means available to
attain their end no matter how immoral. Amoral tyrants substitute their
own good for the common good. The life of their country centers about
their own personal needs.

We pray ...
- for a deep and profound respect for life, especially for the unborn.
- for all the prayer intentions in the MTQ Dailyprayer Diary.

Finally, we pray for one another, for those who have asked our
prayers and for those who need our prayers the most.

Have a good day!
