The Triumph of the Innocents | Behind The Canvas
December 28th the Feast of the Holy Innocents is not an easy commemoration. It’s downright heartbreaking. But the Church has commemorated these little martyrs since the 5th century, and it would be wrong of us to ignore them year after year. So if you want to commemorate these holy innocents, stick around; and we’ll take you on a little pilgrimage to the Judean countryside, to a moonlit night, when the Holy family escaped Bethlehem.
