The Catholic Church remembers the little unconscious martyrs for the faith, exterminated in Bethlehem by the order of the king of Judea Herod the Great, who in this way intended to eliminate the newborn Messiah announced by the Magi, who did not know the identity but he feared he might have dropped him out of the throne (Matthew 2: 16). The Holy Family, warned in an angel's dream, escaped to Egypt, where he returned only after the death of the persecutor. Commemoration on December 28th. Colored Etching, Italy 1886
