Holy Innocents

On this day, the liturgical celebration of the Holy Innocents martyred in Bethlehem so long ago, we especially remember the victims of the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut two weeks ago today. We are praying for the victims and the survivors. May God grant them peace. 
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, 
and may perpetual light shine upon them
and upon all innocent victims of hatred, war and violence.
