The Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord

January 5, 2014


As we reflect on 2013, many have called it the Year of Pope Francis.  In the past few weeks, he has captured many of the year’s top titles including “Man of the Year” and “Best Dressed Man of the Year”.

Pope Francis is reminding us of a message that began with the arrival of the Magi:  that the world is longing to see and hear God, even if they don’t always use the same name.

This Sunday, I would like to challenge the notion that the world is against us, as a Christian community.  While there are reasons to disagree, my prayer is that we take a moment to pause and consider the message of the “foreigner” to each of us.
