Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

“I called my son out of Egypt.”
What a sad story immediately after Christmas. Herod so fearful of the new King, ordered the slaughter of all male infants in the region. An angel told Joseph to leave Bethlehem immediately and flee to Egypt.
Today in this feast of the Holy Innocents, let us look at the children who are without homes, no food, no clothes, who face a bleak future, with no education. Let us bring the light of the Lord to them, bring joy and hope to them, and teach them to dream again. St. Paul says, “Comfort one another.” Let us never hesitate to reach out to those in need.
