The Epiphany of Our Lord

January 3, 2016

WHAT IS OUR LIGHT AND OUR GIFTS?

Beyond the images and personalities of three wise men from the east who come to pay Jesus homage is the narrative that every nation of earth will come to adore Jesus. “That nations shall walk by his light and shall be radiant and their heart will throb and overflow.”

And yet we live in a world that goes about its way, while we – a simple few in comparison – gather here; and I wonder why can’t they see what we see? How do they just miss this?

Of course, it isn’t a new problem – after all – it was only three wise men who came out of the many who could have.   Still, it seems to me that this feast gives us reason to consider two questions: what lights our way? And what gifts we bring?
