Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs

“How great a gift of grace is here! To what merits of their own do the children owe this kind of victory? They cannot speak, yet they bear witness to Christ. They cannot use their limbs to engage in battle, yet already they bear off the palm of victory.

                                               – St. Quodvultdeus on the Holy Innocents


For Reflection:

How do I bear witness to Christ in my words, in my deeds? Am I willing to bear witness through the gift of my life? Why or why not?
