Run Time: 08:32. Gospel: Mt 2:1-12.
Today, as we celebrate the Epiphany, there are many other images that we could contemplate in light of – not only Gospel and the Nativity scene, but ways to practically think about our faith. We could imagine the image of the star guiding the wise men. That steady and silent witness to Christ. A gentle, but clear and attractive invitation to follow after Him. So many people in the world today are seeking fulfillment where they can’t find it: money, pleasure, power, merely human relationships, earthly hopes, all of those things fade away. But we are to be like the star, are we not? To be that beacon of hope, by the way we live our lives. To be that beacon – like a lighthouse (another example) of that lasting and eternal Kingdom. The Kingdom of Christ that will infuse all those hopes and relationships with meaning and power. The way in which we live, that which we contemplate at the stable, should over time … make us more and more into the image of Christ, to reflect Him to those around us.
