The Holy Innocents, abortion, and help for healing

In today's Gospel, Matthew tells us that the slaughter of the children two years old and younger by King Herod fulfilled the prophecy of Jeremiah:

"A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and loud lamentation, Rachel
weeping for her children; she refused to be consoled, because they were
no more."

In the midst of grief, Jesus offers hope. If you, or someone you know, is living with the pain of a past abortion, please consider the healing services of Project Rachel.

(I imagine it's a coincidence that pro-abortion folks in Massachusetts choice today, of all days, to unveil proposed legislation to increase the "buffer zone" around the killing factories.)
