Herod…issued an order to kill all the boys in Bethlehem

BY FR. FRANK PAVONE

priests for lifeThis reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org

“Herod…issued an order to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and the surrounding area who were two years old or less…” (Matthew 2:16).

Reflection: This Feast of the Holy Innocents leads Christians to reflect on the tragedy of abortion. Each day, our hearts should be broken as the bodies of these babies are broken, and the souls of those who kill them are weighed down with the burden of guilt and despair.

Prayer: Lord, as the People of Life, enable us to bring into this world the hope that comes from the birth of Christ and from the birth of every baby. Amen.
