The Massacre of the Holy Innocents

Vox in Rama audita est, ploratus et ululatus, Rachel plorans filios suos. 
In Rama was there a voice heard, weeping and mourning, Rachel weeping for her children.
-Fifth Antiphon at Lauds

Herod believed that by engaging in this heartless massacre, he would be able to kill the Real King however all he did was create martyrs for Christ.  Now, two thousand years later, Herod is dead however these Innocents are in Paradise enjoying in the delights of their Lord.
