The Epiphany of the Lord

January 9, 2012

REDISCOVERING A KINGLY CELEBRATION

Today, as we celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord, we celebrate the majesty of our faith. These words of Isaiah – in fact the whole reading – reminds us that substance of our belief has captured the imagination of the world for centuries. What do these three kings represent? Why is their role in this story so important? It is not just that they brought gifts, but that they symbolize the peoples of all the world celebrating the God with whom we know intimately.

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to embark on a journey to rediscover the celebration of the Church. We are going to relearn what the three kings have already told us – that what Christ has done is not just for us, but for the entire world.
