EPIPHANY OF THE LORD - January 3, 2021

Isaiah 60: 1-6; Psalm 72; Ephesians 3: 2-3a, 5-6;
Matthew 2: 1-12

Jude Siciliano, OP


 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

They [the Magi] were overjoyed at seeing the star,
and on entering the house
they saw the child with Mary his mother.
They prostrated themselves and did him homage.

 

Reflection:


Foreigners led to the Christ child’s home do him homage. National boundaries and differences dissolve when we respond to God’s invitation to come to Christ. We are always welcome into God’s presence and in gratitude our commitment is to Christian hospitality throughout this year – to welcome visitors as we would welcome Christ.

 

So, we ask ourselves:
 

  • How do I practice hospitality?

  • Have I ever been treated as an outsider?

  • Do I treat any people or groups as outsiders?
