Let us ask the Mother of God, to prepare for us the way that leads to the fullness of love.

Today the Church celebrates Jesus being made known to the whole world. Epiphany means ‘manifestation,’ and in the Kings are represented all peoples of every language and nation who set out, called by God to adore Jesus. “All kings shall pay him homage, all nations shall serve him.” They obeyed the king and went on their journey; and all at once the star which they had seen in the East was the place where the Child was. They rejoiced!!!
The kings went into the dwelling, they found the Child there, with His Mother, Mary, lying in a manger, and they fell down to worship Him. They adored Him. They knew that he was the Messiah, God made Man.
The gifts of the Kings. Our offerings.
The Kings opening their store of treasures offered Him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh. The most precious gifts of the East they offer; only the best for God.
We make our offering to Our Lord daily, because we can meet him every day in Holy Mass and Communion. We can place our offering there too, made up of little things, which Jesus will accept. If we do the little things we offer with a right intention, they acquire a far greater value than gold, frankincense or myrrh, because they are united to the sacrifice of Christ, the Son of God who offers Himself there.
In today’s Gospel of Matthew, we read that in obedience to the voice of the Angel, the Kings returned to their own country by another way. What joy those men must have had in their hearts to the end of their days, having seen the Child and His Mother. The Epiphany is the feast of faith. Those of us who have already reached the faith and those who are on the path to finding it share alike in this feast. We participate, giving thanks for the gift of faith. We don’t ask these holy kings to give us gold, frankincense or myrrh. It seems more natural to ask them to teach us the way which leads to Jesus Christ, so that every day we can take Him our own gold, incense and myrrh.
Points to Pray and Ponder: Let us ask the Mother of God, to prepare for us the way that leads to the fullness of love. Most Immaculate Heart of Mary, prepare for us a safe way?
