Prayer for the Holy Innocents

Columban Daily Prayer
December 28, 2023

We remember today, O God,
the slaughter of the holy innocents
of Bethlehem by King Herod.
Receive, we pray, into the arms of Your mercy
all innocent victims; and by Your great might
frustrate the designs of evil tyrants
and establish Your rule of justice, love and peace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You,
in the union of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
