December 28


Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs


Read today about the Holy Innocents who were put to death by King Herod.


The observances of the Christmas season illuminate many key themes for the faithful. Meditate today on this one: 

"The sacredness of human life and the wonderful event that is every birth, since the Word of life came amongst men and was made visible through his birth of the Virgin Mary (see 1 Jn 1:2)."

—Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy (2001), no. 108


Pray the Rosary for life today.


Add an intercession for life that has particular meaning for your family to the mealtime blessing today.
