12-28-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 28, 2018
(Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs)
When the magi had departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.”  Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed for Egypt. . . .  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 Mt_2:13-18

What a sad tale of greed, jealousy, hatred, anger and evil!  Jesus came, beloved, to free us from all that is evil.  But that doesn’t exclude us from falling victim to that same scourge in others.  Then, it’s up to us to convert these people, through His love, so that they may never perpetrate such deeds upon us or others.  Show His love always!  Not just to those who show His love to us, but especially to those who don’t.  We may never know how many innocent lives we may have saved through one simple act of kindness, peace or love.
