Continuing the celebration of day three of the twelve days of Christmas, I spent a lovely lunch at Brothers Provisions with a college friend and her family.  Seeing her daughter hold her present really highlighted the day’s focus on celebrating the innocents.  As Christianity Today states, “On December 28, we celebrate the feast of the Holy Innocents, the children murdered by Herod…They died unjustly before they had a chance to know or to will—but they died for Christ nonetheless. In them we see the long agony of those who suffer and die through human injustice, never knowing that they have been redeemed. If Christ did not come for them too, then surely Christ came in vain. In celebrating the Holy Innocents, we remember the victims of abortion, of war, of abuse. We renew our faith that the coming of Christ brings hope to the most hopeless. And, in the most radical way possible, we confess that like the murdered children we are saved by the sheer mercy of Christ, not by our own doing or knowing.”
