Title: Holy Innocents
Post by: Patricia on October 26, 2011, 09:42:27 AM

The children die for Christ, though they do not know it. The parents mourn for the death of martyrs. The Christ child makes of those as yet unable to speak fit witnesses to himself. But you, Herod, do not know this and are disturbed and furious. While you vent your fury against the child, you are already paying him homage, and do not know it.

-- Saint Quodvultdeus from a sermon about the Holy Innocents

We call this "Niños Innocentes".  This is celebrated here on December 28.

It is liken to April fools day here somehow.  I guess it's because Herod got fooled?  ???

According to SQPN, the name Quodvultdeus means “What God wants”; in other words, “The Will of God”
I would not mind at all having a name like that!

A short form of the name would emerge in no time, i.e Quodie or even Deus  ;D

Not bad pebbles  :)
Let's add two more and make it "Quo". Sounds just about right, Saint Quo. I hope he does not object to our shortening his name :)
