The Holy Innocents –
When the days were darkened by the evil of King Herod, Mary and Joseph plunged into the business of rearing a child. Their focus was not on the evil of King Herod but on the love of God. There are King Herods in our society today, drugs, alcohol, all kinds of addictions that are waiting to eat away at the fabric of our children. Our attention must be given to our children and we need a strong faith in God as Mary and Joseph.
