Send articleCommentary for the Solemnity of the Epiphany
Recent studies have shown that those east of Judea would have indeed seen a phenomenon in the sky, a star in their sense of the term, right at the time of the birth of Jesus. Were the three simply wise men? Certainly, they were wise, but wiser than most men. They were willing to leave their lands, their comforts, and journey to find the great King whose birth was announced by the star. We pray today for the wisdom to seek the Lord.
