My Christmas daybook for these 12 days of celebrating. Join me, won't you?
Slaughter of the Innocents, detail
Revelation 21:1-8: and death shall be no more
(You are welcome to read with me the Daily Devotional for Christmastide from Christ Church of Austin here.)
We remember today, O God, the slaughter of the holy innocents of Bethlehem by King Herod. Receive, we pray, into the arms of your mercy all innocent victims; and by your great might frustrate the designs of evil tyrants and establish your rule of justice, love, and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
