January 2, 2011Dear Parish Family,HAPPY NEW YEAR!Today we celebrate the Epiphany of the Lord. Wecelebrate the Magi traveling from a faraway land to honor the newborn King. He came not just for His own race, butfor all the people of the world. Epiphany means“manifestation”.Throughout my life (first as a young man, then aseminarian and now as a priest) I’ve always enjoyedsitting in front of the Nativity Set. The only lights on(whether in the living room of my parents’ home or in thechurch) would be the lights on the Christmas tree and thelights illuminating the crèche. I would sit there quietlyreflecting on the beautiful scene before me. I would lookat the various characters that are part of this familiar storyand reflect on their role.Today I want to reflect on the magi coming bearinggold, frankincense and myrrh. Each nativity scene showsthe magi either seated on camels or leading them close totheir destination. The story of the magi never is how theygot there, though. They could have traveled on foot, inchariots, or by camel or horseback – we just don’t knowThe reason we keep putting them on camels in our art is because of Isaiah’s prophecy. He predicted thatcaravans of camels would fill Jerusalem, and that peoplefrom the East would come bearing gold and frankincense:“Rise up in splendor, Jerusalem!”, he proclaims. “Your light has come.”In Matthew’s story, the magi realize that Jerusalem’slight has come. They follow the star and bring their gifts:gold – because Christ is a King, frankincense as anacknowledgment of Christ’s future priestly role, and themyrrh (which was used to prepare a corpse for burial)probably anticipated Christ’s death on the cross.By telling about these gifts, Matthew turns our attention back to Isaiah. Reading that prophecy, we,Christians, recognize the light Isaiah mentions as theLight of the World, Jesus Christ.When we see the magi seated on camels, we areremembering Isaiah – a major character in our Adventreadings. When we remember this important prophet, weremember the light that came to shatter the darkness of our world.The Epiphany celebrates the fact that the mystery of God’s love is now open to the whole world. That is theepiphany, the revelation of God’s love and goodness toevery one of us.Thank you for your Stewardship of Time, Talent andTreasure and for all that you do for our parish!Love,Fr. Larry
