Epiphany

Posted on

Originally delivered on January 6, 1991

Readings: Isaiah 60: 1-6; Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-6; Matthew 2:1-12

Today we are invited to reflect on how Mary felt about the shepherds and magi visiting just after giving birth to Jesus. And yet, we are reminded that though we may be strangers with some, we are all family which requires us to examine our definition or understanding of family.  Perhaps it wasn’t easy for Mary to welcome the strangers, she set an example and welcomed them.  We are called, as members of the great family of God, to share the good news that God is Love and Mercy and we are all God’s children.
