Readings: Isaiah 60:1-6; Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-6; Matthew 2:1-12
Christmas is not complete until Epiphany when we welcome others, foreigners as the Magi where, to know of the Good News of Jesus. Our universal Catholic Church is not complete until all are invited to share of the promise of the Gospel. We celebrate the spirit of Christmas when we share ourselves with all of God’s people. When we don’t embrace all people, regardless of our differences, we are not only depriving them, but are also depriving ourselves of part of the beauty of God’s creation.
