Thought of the Day December 28, 2015

Today, as we remember the Holy Innocents who died at the hand of Herod, who was seeking to kill the Christ child, the new born King, we realize that today thousands of innocent babies are slaughtered through abortion. Like their spiritual ancestors who went before them, these innocent children's lives are taken because of the selfishness of others.  These innocent children did not have to die. Their death was not God’s Will, although He permitted it. But as human beings try to destroy innocent lives, God brings them in the fullness of life with him. God does not will their death but he does will them to be with him in glory. What mystery! What mercy! What love!
