Feast of the Holy Innocents

The Holy Innocents:

These children were martyrs because they were killed as part of an attack on Christ.

Today, though opposition to Christ is not normally the intention of those who have abortions, it is nevertheless a central part of the efforts of those who deliberately and persistently work worldwide to assure that abortion remains legal.

Mockery of Scripture, Christians, the Church, and God himself is a common aspect of the beliefs, writings, and activities of radical abortion advocates. The children killed by abortion are the Holy Innocents of our day, and some theologians and other members of the faithful are studying and advocating for the possibility that the Church will claim these children as martyrs.

Last year, my girls and I participated in the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal Pro-life march on the Feast of the Holy Innocents in New York City, and two lives were saved.

Here are the girls praying in front of the book where their three brothers in heaven names' are recorded, at the Church of the Holy Innocents in Manhattan.
This year, because of my little Christina's pnemonia, we cared for her where it's warm. I am so grateful to God to have my sweet daughter recovering slowly at home.
