The Holy Innocents

Today is the Feast of the Holy Innocents. These were the children killed by King Herod in his attempt to do away with the Savior who had been born.

Let us pray for today's innocents--children killed by abortion and devistated by abuse and neglect.

Oh Mary, Mother of Sorrows, comfort all those touched by the sorrow of children today. May they be consoled by your heavenly touch and wrapped in your arms.

Me too. I have a picture of Our Lady of Sorrows on my wall that my sister gave me. And the Rosary I use most often has a center medal with Our Lady of Sorrows on it. Its very comforting.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
