Christmas daybook, 4: and death shall be no more

My Christmas daybook for these 12 days of celebrating. Join me, won't you?


Slaughter of the Innocents, detail
Reni, Guido



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.



Johann Michael Haydn: Mass and Vespers for the Feast of the Holy Innocents
