Wise Men

Today is the Feast of the Epiphany. This is the time when the magi, or wise men, searched and visited the baby Jesus in Bethlehem. This is the end of the Christmas season and the start of the ordinary time. School will officially start tomorrow and I will go back to my boarding house.

Jesus Christ appeared to the wise people after they saw the bright star and followed it. They had knowledge and wisdom to know the meaning of the stars. They had wealth and means to travel because they had come from faraway lands. They had courage even as they faced King Herod who pretended to seek the child. They showed gratitude and reverence when they saw the child Jesus in Bethlehem. I hope to be like them, a Gentile person who seeks God.
