The Holy Innocents

The Holy Innocents

I know I?m on hiatus, but today is different. Every year it?s different, a day marked out from the others, as Good Friday is, by the innocent blood that drips from the lintel. But Calvary marks a Passover, the purging of sin through willing self-sacrifice by the Son of Man. Today marks our own sacrifice of the sons of men, to no purpose all, to no god but Moloch. And the Supreme Court is his prophet, (peace be upon them).

For more reflections on this dark day, see my post from one year ago.

A friend once asked me to rank political issues. So I told him: ?Immigration determines whether or not we save our country. Abortion determines whether or not it deserves to be saved.? 

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth; and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.  Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying:  In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning: Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
