The light of the star guided the sight of the wise men to the infant Jesus.  God's light continues to shine in our world today through Prayer, Scripture, Sacraments, and Fellowship.  May we not only use our sight to recognize the Lord's presence, but may we also shine with the light of faith to help others draw near to Christ.

Simeon, filled with the Holy Spirit, held the baby Jesus in his arms and praised God, saying:

“Lord, now let your servant go in peace;
your word has been fulfilled:
my own eyes have seen the salvation
which you prepared in the sight of every people,
a light to reveal you to the nations
and the glory of your people Israel.”  (Luke 2:29-32)

May our eyes be open, to see God's hand touching and blessing our lives today!

Like a bridge that connects two shores, Jesus Christ comes into our world to unite us to God and one another.  Fully human like us, he teaches us about God and guides us to heaven.  Fully divine, he has the power to overcome sin and death and bring healing and reconciliation to our lives.

The Magi followed the Star which led them to Jesus Christ - the source of all Light.  Through their journey, they reveal two points for consideration today:

  • How do we seek the Light of Christ in our lives?
  • How do we share the Light of Christ with one another?

The Feast of the Epiphany - where light shines upon us for understanding, insight, and hope - strengthens us to welcome God's light into our hearts, that we may be a light to those around us!

The Holy Family encountered great extremes of blessing and hardship.  Their witness can teach us two crucial lessons:

  • They faced life together
  • God was with them

The example of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph can inspire us to call upon God's help as we walk with our families through life.

In A Christmas Carol we see two completely different portraits of Ebenezer Scrooge: on one hand he is a tight-fisted miser whose heart is cold; on the other hand he is a fully alive uncle and employer who wishes "Merry Christmas!" to friends and strangers alike.  

What happened?  What brought about the transformation?  Simply put, the power of Christmas - Jesus Christ - touched his heart and changed his life.

This power continue to speak to us today.  The incarnation of Jesus - God becoming like us - removes all barriers and obstacles that keep us from the Lord and one another.  By recognizing the parts of our lives that have "Bah!  Humbug!" and turning to Christ, we can receive the power and grace of Christmas.
