Augustine For Today

December 28 – THE HOLY INNOCENTS

“Rejoice, you just; it is the birthday of the Justifier. Rejoice you who are weak and sick; it is the birthday of the Savior, the Healer. Rejoice, captives; it is the birthday of the Redeemer. Rejoice, slaves; it is the birthday of the one who makes you lords. Rejoice, free people; it is the birthday of the one who makes you free. Rejoice, all Christians; it is the birthday of Christ.”

Sermon 184
