Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Today as we celebrate the Epiphany or Manifestation of the. Lord Jesus to every one, we do so by recalling Matthew’s account of the Magi or Wisemen searching for the “child born King of the Jews”. Notice that when they found the child with his mother, they opened their treasures and offered him gifts.
The feast challenges us to be the Magis today. That is, to be among those who search for the One who will save us from our sinfulness. Our search should be relentless until we find, or rather, experience the very One we are looking for. He is Christ the Lord.
As we experience him, let us offer him gifts from our treasures. Let us offer him our lives.
