The structural violence of hunger, disease, and war that kills Eliminating this gap between mortality in the poorest and wealthiest households would have saved 2 million lives in Catherine was one of the Holy Innocents who survived the structural violence of lack of essential healthcare until she was eleven, but died at night at home, of renal failure when a tumour which could have been surgically removed had adequate services been available blocked her kidneys. Mercifully, Hospice Africa Uganda HAU provided her with palliative care and oral morphine to ease her pain and breathlessness.

I met Catherine on a home visit in Kampala last time I stayed with Dr. Anne, as she is known, is credited with introducing oral morphine to Africa and teaching palliative care providers, mainly registered nurses, to legally prescribe and use it.

At least the wheelchair would allow her to sit up and go outside, get some fresh air, and see what was going on in the neighbourhood. After all, improving quality of life is what palliative care is all about!

Feast of the Holy Innocents: Cruelty Cannot Overcome Christ’s Charity

With no sidewalks or accessible streets, there was no chance of her being pushed far, though. In order to get to the house, we had to manoeuvre the chair down a very steep hill, which even the hospice car could not descend because it was so filled with deep ruts. Today is just a good day to remember that, and recommit ourselves humbly to the work of alleviating the suffering, one patient and family at a time.

Real Life. Emphasis is placed, not so much on the isolated individual elements, as on their theological significance in the Christ story. It seems strongly probable that Matthew wished to present three basic themes in his Infancy narrative: Jesus is the new Moses; Jesus is true wisdom; Jesus is the new Israel. The last theme seems dominant. If this is true, a striking case can be made that, in the story of the Innocents, Matthew has been inspired by a midrash on Dt — 8. According to the midrash, Laban the Aramaean sought to destroy Jacob Israel and his entire family; this attempt was later considered an effort to prevent the coming of the Messiah.

Herod the Idumean, in his slaughter of the Innocents, represents Laban's oppression of Jacob-Israel and renews the attempt to prevent the coming of the Messiah. This comparison of Laban and Herod that is brought about by attributing to Herod a slaughter of the Innocents invites a comparison between Christ and Jacob.

Implicitly, Christ is presented as the new Jacob-Israel, the bearer of messianic hope. Once the Jesus-Israel theme is established, Jacob's wife Rachel becomes an apt mourner and serves to underline the comparison once again. Especially is this true when one realizes that the prophecy of Jeremiah Jer to which Matthew refers opens with reference to the tragedy of the Exile originally that of the Northern Kingdom and then extended to that of the Southern Kingdom but continues with a description of restoration that is realized fully only in the coming of the Messiah.

Seen in this setting, the episode of the Innocents, whether historical or not, contributes to the unfolding of the Jesus-Israel theme and helps one understand the role of Jesus, the new Israel, who will definitively establish the new people of God.
