Gospel Reflection for January 5, Epiphany Sunday

Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews?  We saw his star at its rising and have come to pay him homage.”

Matthew 2.2

The gospel tells us little about the foreigners who come to worship Jesus, but we have clothed them in rich detail.  Why?  Maybe because the strangers take such a big risk in following the star.  They leave the comforts of their homes, take a long trip, and outwit a king anxious for his crown.  They don’t know where they are going or what they will find when they get there.  In other words, they are model believers and seekers of truth.


Where have you journeyed to find hope in transcendent meaning in your life?  What did you find?
