As we celebrate the visitation of the Magi, call the Epiphany, let us focus on the impact made to the world because of this visit. Immanuel…God is with us in now the message these scholars would have brought to their specific regions. Their journey coupled with the interactions with the Holy Family must have been so exhilarating and yet perplexing. Many times in our life, our journey of the day to day may seem endless and sometimes overwhelming. What we learn from the wisemen is that the eventual “A-ha” moment takes place when we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5-7). We all have had those a-ha moments when we see the hand of God at work. So as we remember the Epiphany of the Lord, let us continue to “come and see” with new eyes, expecting that He will reveal himself to us in any situation, when we are open to that epiphany. Happy New Year.
