Epiphany - Three
January 6, 2017
The twelve days of Christmas end with the Feast of Epiphany also called "The
Adoration of the Magi" or "The Manifestation of God." Celebrated on January 6,
it is known as the day of the Three Kings (or wise men/magi): Caspar, Melchior
and Balthasar. According to an old legend based on a Bible story, these three
kings saw, on the night when Christ was born, a bright star, followed it to
Bethlehem and found there the Christchild and presented it with gold,
frankincense and myrrh.
Epiphany is a prime Christian feast and is also called
Twelfth Day or Little Christmas. It commemorates the baptism of Jesus and the
visit of the Wise Men to Bethlehem.
In Hispanic and Latin culture, as well as some places in Europe, it is known as
Three Kings’ Day.
Dear Jesus, as You led the
Three Kings to You by the light of a star, please draw us ever closer to
You by the light of Faith. Help us to desire You as ardently as they
did. Give us the grace to overcome all the obstacles that keep us far
from You. May we, like them, have something to give You when we appear
before You. Mary, Our Mother, help us to know Your Son.
