(The Epiphany of the Lord)
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.” . . .
And behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them, until it came and stopped over the place where the child was. They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Mt 2:1-12
The Star, the magi, the evil king, and the Child with His Mother.
Where and when do we find the Child and His Mother, beloved?
Are they out there somewhere? Or are they ‘in here’?
Are they so imbedded within our hearts that we
don’t really have to go anywhere to be with them?
