Solemnity of the Epiphany of Our Lord


Look up, sweet Babe, look up and see
For love of Thee
Thus far from home
The east is come
To seek herself in Thy sweet eyes;
We, who strangely went astray,
Lost in a bright
Meridian night,
A darkness made of too much day,
Beckon’d from far
By Thy fair star,
Lo at last have found our way.
— Richard Crashaw: The Glorious Epiphany of Our Lord,
Hymn (seventeenth century)
For Reflection:  A brilliant star led the magi to the manger of the Child Jesus. What (or who) have been the “stars” in my life that have led me to Jesus? I will say a prayer of thanksgiving for all of these stars who have helped me grow in relationship with Our Lord. (Hint: Read “A Prayer Time Reflection” in Chapter 5 of Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life for more insight).
