Regarding “Holy Innocents, Jan. 3, Page 18:

Thank you, Michael Van der Hout, for reminding us about the feast of the Holy Innocents. Herod in his power-hungry rage killed innocent babes in arms.

“In his own sight, all young children to slay” should be a vivid reminder for any person who professes to be Catholic, Christian or humane and supports in any way any program or indication of support of the killing of innocent babes whether in arms or in the womb.

God bless the children we have lost. God bless those who fight for the innocent.
