The manger scene in our home. Tragedy struck after the birth of Jesus. Many children were slain in Bethlehem, another small town filled with tragedy, by the crazy King Herod in an effort to protect his throne.
“When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi…A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.” (Gospel of Matthew)
The world has been fallen and broken a very long time.
