The Epiphany of the Lord - Jan. 3, 2021
God uses different means to get our attention.

For the magi from the East it was a star that guided them to the Christ-child.

For others it may have been a parent or a grandparent who first pointed out the importance of Jesus in their lives. They were the “star” that leads to Christ.

And, it seems to me, that God often uses more than one way to cause us to go on a search for Christ, perhaps as many ways as there are stars in the heavens. It might be a special bible passage that makes us stop and think, or a particularly difficult period in our lives that causes us to say a prayer. It could be an “aha” moment when we just begin to know that we are loved by God. Or, for others, it might come from staring into the eyes of the Blessed Sacrament that becomes their “star” moment.

However God does it, by whatever star God uses, God wants us to search for our salvation until we find it in his Son. And, when we do, we find it necessary to bow down and worship him above all other things and persons and giving him our gifts.
May all of us be like the magi who left what was comfortable in search of what was most meaningful — and worship the Lord with our hearts and our lives, giving him the best we have.

Merry Christmas everyone — and may the new year be better than the last one!

God bless you and those you love.
