This morning John and I had the gift of sharing the office with his week off of school for Christmas Vacation. We shared the feast of the Holy Innocents, and John's question rang true as the taking of innocent lives continue to this day through abortion. Yes, this feast is devoted to those boys 2 and under slaughtered in Bethlehem by order of King Herod, but our hearts continue to ache for all those ripped from the womb in pieces and thrown away or left to die when delivered in abortion procedures! Many of us feel like Rachel weeping for her children... knowing the horror of abortion, and weeping for the loss of all the beautiful lives of the unborn!
and proclaim to you:
God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all...
and the Blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from all 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."

The girls even better!
O my, does this give us comfort or not? So special! All those little ones in the arms of their spiritual Mother of heaven and Earth!
