I love meditating on the Epiphany. Although the Liturgical feast commemorates three different manifestations of the Lord (the coming of the Magi from the East, the Baptism of the Lord, and Jesus’ miracle at Cana changing water into wine), we tend to focus on the Magi. These mysterious
visitors, who seem a little out of character with the stable at Bethlehem add a sparkle of color, an aroma of the East, a touch of “bling” to the manger scene. Their presence at the manger remind us that our God is full of surprises who delights in paradox and fulfills all prophecies to the fullest.
