It’s a well-known story, but what’s not as well known is that Epiphany wasn’t just for the sake of the Magi but for the sake of all humankind. It was at Epiphany that our Lord’s power and purpose were revealed beyond the Jews and to gentiles of every nation. That’s reason to rejoice!
The evil one wants us to obsess over the anxieties of daily life so that we stop trusting God. Once we lose our trust in God, nothing divine makes any sense anymore, And so, if we’re steeped n anxiety when the hour comes, we won’t be fully prepared to turn ourselves over to the Lord.
