Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Epiphany -- a Greek word meaning "appearance or manifestation." We celebrate today the manifestation of Our Lord to the
whole world. After He was made known to the shepherds keeping watch outside Bethlehem, he is now revealed to the Magi, who have come from the East to adore Him.
In age of electricity and artificial lights, it is difficult for us to appreciate the symbolism of light; but the truth is that Christ as Light is the fullest expression of God's work in the world.
today we are being invited to God's Kingdom, his Church, which is our means to reach heaven.
The Epiphany is a festival of light, for on this
day we celebrate the manifestation of Jesus Christ in the darkness of the world calling all humankind to come and bathe in His Light.
We are baptised so we have the entire Light of Christ, but too often we think that is enough. The strange thing about Jesus is that
you can never get away from Him, but also you can never get enough of Him.
The more we Christians receive the Light of Christ, the more we want to give it to others.
