Jeremiah: By now you have figured that each day this week has a special designation. Well, this one also. Today we commemorate (or remember) the “Holy Innocents”, whom Herod the Great found so bothersome. Who are they? You ask? The Scripture (Jeremiah) is also quoted in Matthew 2:18. This is a terrific prophecy to quote here. This is also one I would not have connected to Jesus if the Holy Spirit hadn’t done my homework for me. So determining what is prophetic is best left to the Expert.
Gospel: Matthew 2:16-18
New Testament: Galatians 3:15-22
