12-28-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

12-28-13
(Feast of the Holy Innocents, martyrs)
When Herod realized that he had been deceived by the magi, he became furious.  He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had ascertained from the magi. Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the prophet:  ‘A voice was heard in Ramah, sobbing and loud lamentation; Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled, since they were no more.’  Mt 2:13-18

The things that are done in the name of ‘self-preservation’!

Herod, the Roman ruler of the land – we today call Israel, was threatened by a little child.  And so, with all his power and might, he had all the children killed.  What do we do, beloved, that we may not even realize, that may do harm to others
for the sake of self-preservation?

When we begin to live the life Jesus taught, every action, every decision we make becomes based on a wider viewpoint, not just on me, I and myself.  Then we begin to truly LOVE.  And they immediately recognize something different about us.
We are CHRISTIANS!
