On this the Fourth Day of Christmas, I give you Enya and Silent Night, in Gaelic.
This is also the Feast of the Holy Innocents, which remembers the children slaughtered by Herod in Bethlehem and the surrounding area. This happens to be the 10th anniversary of the letter I wrote to the US Catholic bishops in 2001, that was endorsed by four Catholic Worker Houses (Romero, Columbia Missouri CWer, Divine Mercy in Lyons, Kansas, and Casa Maria in Milwaukee, regarding the morality of our war on the people of Afghanistan, which the US Bishops had endorsed as”just.”
Read it while listening to Enya. http://www.justpeace.org/holyinnocents2001.htm .
And reflect on all the innocents slaughtered in the past decade.
