Feast of the Holy Innocents

Today on the Feast of the Holy Innocents we received word that the Statue of Baby Jesus we sent to the children in Vietnam arrived. The statue of Our Lord did not fair so well. It appeared that the statue sustained considerable damage. It is unclear if individuals may have wondered if there were items inside the statue. Some other small items were missing from the box as well.

But it seemed beautifully symbolic on the Feast of the Holy Innocents when we remember efforts to destroy the Baby Jesus, that today children would come to Our Lord's aid. Tran wrote as he shared news of the injury to the statue of the Baby Jesus, "I will heal the statue". Indeed it seems with the hands of children much that is broken can be healed. One can imagine that the prayers and efforts of the children heal many wounds that hurt the heart of Our Lord. Their tender care and love the salve for so many pains.  

One can see the care which was taken to carefully heal Our Lord. Not only was He put back together but a rose was placed over His Heart.
