been wondering …. about the Feast of the Epiphany?
feast was traditionally the 12th day of Christmas and was celebrated
on January 6th. The word
Epiphany means to “show” or “reveal”.
The Canadian church has chosen to celebrate this feast on the closest
Sunday so that we can all fully share in the celebration. This feast, as with all our feast days, is a
teaching tool for an important aspect of our understanding of the church’s
mission. The Magi who brought gifts to
the child Jesus were the first Gentiles to acknowledge Jesus as “King” and so
were the first to “show” or “reveal” Jesus to a wider world as the incarnate
Christ. The day is now observed as a
time of focusing on the mission of the church in reaching others by “showing Jesus
as the Savior of all people. It is also
a time of focusing on healing the divisions of prejudice and bigotry that we
all too often create between God’s children.
