Christmas Octave Day 7

December 31, 2020  Innocents   Matt 2:16

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.

(This story parallels Moses’ story in the beginning of Exodus)

A bloodied sword raised

Another mother cries

A heartless act of hate

Another boy dies

Still the sword attacked

Helplessly mothers see

Senseless killings

And wanton cruelty

Daily on our streets

Young men and boys still die

The years have taught us nothing

Another mother will cry
