Quote of the Day – 28 December – The Feast of the Holy Innocents – The 4th Octave Day of Christmas

”The precious death of any martyr
deserves high praise
because of his heroic confession;
the death of these children
is precious in the sight of God
because of the beatitude
they gained so quickly.
For already, at the beginning
of their lives, they pass on.
The end of the present life
is for them the beginning of glory.”

St Augustine (354-430) Father & Doctor of the Churchthe precious death - st augustine - 28 dec 2017
