January 6 ~ The Epiphany of the Lord
Today’s readings give us beautiful imagery along with the familiar story of the Magi. A line in the gospel that could be easily missed comes at the end of the Gospel: “they departed for their country by another way.” We might assume that because of their encounter with Christ, they realized that they needed to take another way, follow a new path forward. Do we need to take another path, today, to grow closer to the Lord? A trip is always better with a good traveling companion – is there someone you can invite to walk with you “another way”, the way of sacraments and prayer.
