Epiphany or Twelfth Night today in the Western churches a rememberance of the adoration of the Magi upon the Christ child. In Anglicanism it marks the season of Epiphany, in the Catholic church it’s a single day.
9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.
I really must do more to relate to the church calendar, New Year’s resolution and all that.
Wonder if the Magi would manage to get through to Bethlehem today?
