Matthew 2:13-18

The Holy Family become refugees in a country where their ancestors were held captive. They are safe, but in their homeland Herod has the male infants slaughtered. It is a despicable act of a leader desperate to defend his throne, not unlike Pharaoh’s slaughter of the Israelite children.

I pray for all those displaced by natural disaster or tyrannical leaders in their homeland. May they find refuge, charity, hospitality, and hope.
