Quod-vult-deus

- latin for "What (does) God want ".

Quodvultdeus was a deacon, then Bishop, of Carthage, N. Africa, in 421 A.D.  He corresponded with St. Augustine, who dedicated some of his writings to him and served as his spiritual mentor. Like Augustine, Quodvultdeus was an opponent of Arianism, the heresy that denied the divinity and co-equality of Jesus with God the Father.

Carthage was seized by the Arian King of the Vandals, Geiseric, and Quodvultdeus, together with many priests, was exiled. He landed at Naples in Italy, where he continued his ministry, dying in 450 A.D.

One of Quodvultdeus' sermons is used for the Office of Readings in the Divine Office on the Feast of the Innocents, Dec 28th:

"Why are you afraid, Herod, when you hear of the birth of a king? He does not come to drive you out, but to conquer the devil. But because you do not understand this, you are disturbed and in a rage, and to destroy one child whom you seek, you show your cruelty in the death of so many children."
