How fitting that my first post is on the Solemnity the Epiphany of the Lord! Like the Magi, I’m on a journey seeking the King. The path is sometimes unclear, but as long as I follow my Guide, I can find my way to the Heavenly home.
Like the Magi, we are all asked to go out into the world not only to seek Christ for ourselves, but to bring others to Christ. God has given each of us gifts, and we are meant to use our gifts to adore Him. And by using our time, talents, and treasures to help others, we reflect God’s love to our neighbor.
Normally, January 4th (today) is the feast of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, my confirmation saint. She was the first native-born American to be canonized and is known for her devotion to the education of underprivileged children.
Happy New Year!
