FEAST OF THE HOLY INNOCENTS
Matthew 2:13-18
We celebrate with a Gloria the feast of the Holy Innocents, and we have to ask why. The answer is
not just “because they’re in heaven with Jesus.” We are celebrating something more profound. We
are celebrating the fact that these baby boys in an especially important way experienced the
fullness and purpose of human life, which is to die for Jesus who had come to die for them and for
us.
