Exodus 1:22-2:10: Pharoah commanded..."Every son that is born to the Hebrews, you shall cast into the Nile..." 

Matthew 2:16-18Then Herod...became furious...and killed all the male children in Bethlehem


We remember, O God, that when the wise men worshiped the Christ, King Herod slaughtered the holy innocents of Bethlehem. 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. (source)

Lord have mercy on us; Christ, have mercy on us; Lord, have mercy on us.  Amen.
