Greetings Parishioners and Friends of St. Julie’s,
The month of January can be long and cold. We don’t feel like going out, or fear the big snow. Why not make it something special? Try reaching out by phone or letter to someone who you know may be home bound… or perhaps just someone that you were not able to visit over the holidays. Make it your special ‘visit of the Magi’.
As a new year has dawned upon us, we continue to celebrate the Christmas Season on this Feast of The Epiphany of the Lord. Tradition tells us that the three wise men were named Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. Epiphany is a word meaning manifestation. It is the manifestation of the divinity of Christ to the world as symbolized in these astrologers. Epiphany is also an invitation for us to continue to recognize Christ present and to make him known to the world in which we live today.
Through the telling of the beautiful narrative of the astrologers arriving in Bethlehem, Matthew has affirmed that all peoples are meant to hear and respond to the saving presence of God. Epiphany has often been referred to as the ‘Christmas of the Gentiles’ because it is a proclamation to all peoples, not just the people of Israel. We have traveled a great distance since the baby in a manger. Let us continue to proclaim the good news that Christ is born! So many things we do day-in and day-out can be epiphanies of another sort. Look around! Where do you see Him made visible… or better yet, where do you make Him visible?
