Daily Mass: The Holy Innocents. Catholic Inspiration

Why do the innocent suffer?  Why is there senseless violence, hate, cruelty and pain?  God has granted human souls with the freedom to choose good or evil, and the consequences can be profound.  Yet it was for our sins that the Christ child was born, breaking the chains of evil and offering us a chance for grace and mercy.  May the death of these innocent children inspire us to hold fast to our faith as we follow the Lord.
