Gospel Reflection for January 7, 2018, Epiphany

4 Jan

Scripture Readings: Isaiah 60.1-6; Ephesians 3.2-3, 5-6; Matthew 2.1-12

“Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We observed his star at its rising and have come to pay him homage.” – Matthew 2.2

Epiphany celebrate the manifestation of Jesus to Gentile seekers. Learned Gentiles discover through their study of the heavens a new star that sets them on an earthly journey. A phenomenon in nature stirs their curiosity. They step out of the familiar and comfortable to search for something more. A great thing about being human is that we can always change. We can turn toward and turn away. We, too, can seek more. We can look beyond the places we go day after day and beyond the present.

What new horizon summons you? What first step can you take?
