Psalm 72:1-2, 7-8, 10-11, 12-13
Ephesians 3:2-3a, 5-6
The Feast of the Epiphany is about the gift of a revelation that both offers and requires the gift of faith. The Feast of the Epiphany invites us into the mystery of the truth, the truth that we seek to know through reason and science and the truth that we come to know through the gift of faith. One truth, two paths, faith and reason. The Magi, whom we meet in today’s Gospel reading from Matthew are not simply people who have a warm spiritual experience in seeing the Baby Jesus, they are people who follow their path laid out by reason and the science of their contemporary times and this path delivers them to discover the King who is promised to be born in Bethlehem.
