The Massacre of the Infants
A reading from St. Matthew’s Gospel (2:16-18):
When Herod realized that he had been deceived by the magi, he became furious. He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had ascertained from the magi. Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the prophet:
“A voice was heard in Ramah,
sobbing and loud lamentations,
Rachel weeping for her children,
and she would not be consoled,
since they were no more.”
We had a snowstorm during the night but not as much snow fell as was expected. There are still bare spots here and there. It is raining this morning and I hope that the snow will all disappear.
As regards the Families for Jesus, what still remains is the subjects to be studied over a period of one year. They will study the Bible starting with the book of Genesis. There will be talks on prayer, the role of Baptism in our lives and of all the sacraments. There will be talks on the doctrine of the Church.
Below you will find the message of Our Blessed Mother given to Father Melvin. She spoke to him these words,
“I love you My son Melvin and all My sons and daughters living in every country of the world. How terrible King Herod was that he decided to kill all the boys around Bethlehem who were two years old and under. These innocent children had done nothing wrong. What he wanted to do in fact was to kill My Son Jesus who was just an infant at the time. God protected Him by warning us to flee in order to save the child.
“Today in most countries of the world millions of unborn infants are killed by abortion. This is murder and so many people do not see the evil they are doing. These abortions cause me great pain and how I wish the people of the world would stop these killings. I want every conceived child to be born. Every child has a right to live and no one has the right to kill even one of them. Pray My sons and daughters that all may respect life. I love you all.”
