TODAY WE CELEBRATE the “Epiphany of the Lord”.  The word “epiphany” means “revelation”.  Jesus came to reveal the Father. The Magi or three Kings were searching for Christ.  When they found him, they worshipped him and offered him gifts. Millions of people have followed in the footsteps of the Magi and come to Christ.  We count ourselves among those fortunate millions. The coming of Jesus, the Light of the World and Messiah of Israel, is the dawning of every human hope and dream.  God’s revelation of himself in the coming of Jesus is offered to everyone. Let us open our hearts and minds to encounter Jesus in every Mass.
