EPIPHANY OF THE
LORD - January 2, 2022 - C
Isaiah 60: 1-6; Psalm 72; Ephesians 3: 2-3a, 5-6; Matthew 2: 1-12
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea,
in the days of King Herod,
behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying,
“Where is the newborn king of the Jews?”
Where are we looking for Jesus today? Even if we had no other gospel story than
this one, we should know where to look: among the newcomers and displaced; among
the newborn poor and their families; among those who have no roots and are
searching; among those pushed around by an uncaring system of laws and decrees.
So we ask ourselves:
Would I describe myself as one of the modern-day magi, a searcher for God?
How do I go about
that search each day?
