  • The Holy Innocents

    Contributed by Kristopher Morris on Dec 29, 2003
    based on 38 ratings
     | 4,980 views

    This soon after celebrating Christmas we read the account of Herod’s slaughter of Bethlehem’s baby boys. What does this tragic story mean for us today?

    The Holy Innocents Matthew 2: 1-18 December 28, 2003 Two weeks ago on my drive to church, the radio broadcast some spectacular news. I had to double check the dial to make sure this wasn’t some early morning comedian telling a joke. Nope, it was NPR, and yes it seemed what they were ...read more

    A look at the killing of the innocent children by Herod

    Matthew 2:13-18 Holy Innocents March 16, 2014 This morning, we’re going to look at a passage which comes from the Christmas story, but is readily avoided during the Christmas season. It’s a passage of scripture I’ve never preached from and is maybe one of the least preached ...read more

  • The Holy Innocents

    This jarring episode is just as much a part of the Christmas season as the manger scene. Though grim, the fate of the Innocents shows us how and why we share the hope they had in Christ’s second advent

    The massacre of the Holy Infants was a tragedy that God turned into a victory.

    Holy Innocents Mass (December 28) Thirteen Days of Christmas Saint Matthew is the only evangelist who records what might be called the “Joseph Gospel.” He gives us the account of the angel appearing in a vision to Joseph, confirming Mary’s story that she was pregnant by the ...read more

    the holy innocents slaughter.

    THE SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENT MATTHEW 2.13-18 I hope you had a nice Christmas together. What were the familiar sounds of Christmas?

  • Herod, Dead Babies, And Hope Series

    There was a time in the seventies of the last century when Catholics seemed to stand alone among the Christian churches in their condemnation of abortion. Now they often stand with us outside the abortion mills and pro-choice lectures, praying.

    Feast of the Holy Innocents 2017 Reformation/Revolution I don’t think it is possible to read or hear the account of the flight into Egypt and the intentional murder of an unknown number of children by Herod dispassionately. St. Matthew, writing at least forty years after these events, is ...read more

  • Expect Death At The Birth Of The King

    based on 22 ratings

    how Jesus birth brought about the sword of Herod, and we can expect the same - a sermon for the minor festival of "the Holy Innocents: Martyrs"

    Jesus once said, “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” (Matthew 10:34) The pictures we see of Christmas seem to portray the exact opposite. With Mary and Joseph gently hovering over a little baby in a manger, it’s a very ...read more

    based on 33 ratings
     | 2,593 views

    Do we get caught up in the festivities of the Christmas season, or do we hear God’s call to discipleship? This Sermon is for the observation of the Holy Innocents, December 28.

    Delivered to Deliver Others! Well, here we are, on the other side of Christmas. The gifts are opened, the parties are over, and the meals and cookies are consumed. Perhaps even some of the gifts have been returned. I haven’t yet seen my first Christmas tree on the curb, but I’m sure it can’t be ...read more

     | 2,479 views

    The death of the innocent children in Bethlehem tells us much about evil in the world, and what we can offer the non-believers.

    Hebrews 9:11-15 “That Precious Blood” I. A Better High Priest (11a) • “Good things to come,” could also be said good things that have come. • The “good things” are the promises of God, and Jesus is the high priest that fulfilled these promises: o The promise of Genesis 3:15, “I will ...read more

     | 2,126 views

    When Christmas is all over and done with, life will return to normal; what ever normal is these days but if you think that is hard for us, look at Mary and Joseph, after the Nativity, the part we choose to ignore with Roman soldiers and dead babies.

  • Ethics Must Be Integrated Into Economic Activity Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 28, 2009
     | 949 views

    Just as the action of Herod and of abortionists shows the divorce of economics and ethics, so we must reintegrate ethics into economic activity, if we are to reclaim society for Christ

    December 28, 2009 Feast of the Holy Innocents Caritas in Veritate The timeliness of the Pope’s encyclical, Charity in Truth, and its match to our Monday Scriptures is truly remarkable. Aristotle, himself an unbeliever, used mere reason to arrive at some remarkable truths. One of them is that ...read more

    This sermon is about Christ being the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

    I have a confession to make. It’s not easy for me to say this. This is difficult for me to admit. But, I used to watch professional wrestling. I know, I know, that’s hard to believe. That was back in the days when Hulk Hogan was in his prime. It was cool to watch professional wrestling. ...read more
