Then Herod, when he saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, was in a furious rage, and he sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under, according to the time which he had ascertained from the wise men. Then was fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet 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."
If you are a post-abortive woman or man, please do not refuse consolation. Among other sources, the Catholic Church offers "Project Rachel:" help for healing your spiritual and emotional wounds.
May God bless you.Holy Innocents! Pray that, through the grace of our Newborn Savior, for Whom your blood was shed, the hearts of man may be softened and the insanity of abortion will end. Amen.
