Today, the Epiphany of Christ, the revealing of Christ,, especially to the Gentiles. Actually three revealing events are generally highlighted today:
1. The coming of the Magi to the house where the Holy Family dwelt,
2. The Baptism of Jesus followed by John’s words “behold the Lamb of God which takest away the sin of the world”, and
3. The transformation of water to wine at the wedding of Cana about which St. John says “This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.”
May the Lord attend each home today as we chalk our doors and beseech His blessing for the coming year.
See you tonight Lord willing,
