January 6, Epiphany of the Lord

Lord, every nation on earth will adore you. — Psalm 72 (cf. 11)

Mass Readings: Isaiah 60:1-6/Ephesians 3:2-3a,5-6/Matthew 2:1-12
Find Your Star

Today’s readings pull us into the light, not only the shining brilliance of a star so magnificent it would lead magi from afar to a stable in Bethlehem but a light that lives within each one of us, a light that guides us through our darkest hours, the light of Christ.

In Isaiah we’re told, “Raise your eyes and look about . . . then you shall be radiant at what you see, your heart shall throb and overflow.” How often do we go through life head down, eyes on the ground, barreling forward? But when we lift our eyes and follow Christ’s lead rather than our own stubborn agenda, we finally see the light, and our hearts overflow. Look up, follow the star He has put before you, and prepare for an epiphany of epic proportions.

Prayer: Jesus, I seek You today as the magi did long ago. Come, be my Light.
