God is Pro-Life!! Deut 30:19

Although the Christmas season is now past, I'd like to re-visit just one special day that we commemorate during Christmastide...that of Dec. 28th, the Feast of the Holy Innocents.  As in Herod's time, the innocent precious lives of the baby boys whose lives were cut short by Herod's selfish and wicked ways, repeats itself today in the shedding of innocent life...reaching all the way into the wombs of women.  As many gather in Washington D.C. this weekend to march up Capitol Hill in a bonded walk of solidarity representing Life, let us pray and pray again, and fight and fight again, and vote and vote again...for leaders and voices in favor of life and life giving choices, so the murdering of innocent life will cease.  Choose Life!

The Holy Innocents were the children mentioned in Matthew 2:16-18. "When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more."

Both events make me shudder that such things have been allowed to take place.
