Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - Feast of the Epiphany

Today is the feast of the Epiphany of the Lord.
Epiphany means “manifestation.” There is a threefold
manifestation of Jesus: 1) to the Magi as recorded in today’s
Gospel; 2) at His Baptism in the Jordan River that we celebrate
next Sunday; and 3) at the marriage feast of Cana. Jesus has
come for all people, as St. Paul reminds us today.
Some might say that the Magi followed a dream when
they followed a star. That dream became a reality when they
found the Lord Jesus. At times, we need to follow dreams so
that they will lead us to Jesus. On their journey, the Magi
encountered difficulties, but they kept on the search. As we
journey through life, we too encounter difficulties, but we
should keep on our search. Even if we get off track, if our
desire is sincere, we will be led to Jesus and find great joy in
our encounter with Him. Follow the star as revealed in Sacred
Scripture and we will find the Lord Jesus.
