Today is a good time to recall that Herod feared and hated the infant King of the Jews so much, he ordered the execution of all male children around Jesus’ age in the vicinity of Bethlehem (Mt 2:13-18). He wanted to prevent Jesus’ kingship – but that he was powerless to accomplish.
How horrible it had to have been where mother after mother had their child ripped out from their arms and murdered in their sight. There was nothing these women could do to stop it
The slaughter of innocents began by Herod has not ended. It has just taken another form – the millions of children brutally killed in their mother’s wombs through abortion.
Where is the outrage? Why the silence? Why have we not stopped these atrocities?
Speak up against the evil of abortion. Save lives and souls.
