As we celebrate St. Stephen Deacon & Martyr, the Holy Innocents and today St. Thomas Becket we are reminded of the world's rejection of their King through the ages. Many have suffered to the point ot death for His Name and His Truth. May we willingly embrace whatever suffering we must in ordered to be counted among His faithful disciples. All Hail King Jesus!
