Epiphany Sunday, January 3, 2021

Traditional observance of the arrival of the Three Magi, or Wise Ones, who bring gifts to the Christ Child is the sixth of January. This year the church celebrates today, the third. In many parts of the world, this is the time when families exchange gifts to observe this Feast of the Three Kings who bear gifts of frankincense, gold, and myrrh. For another reflection, or for more about this special day when we are surprised by God’s goodness and abundance, visit the “Who Are the Three Magi” or the “Background Image” pages on this blog.

The Tenth Day of Christmas

1 John 3:1-2


See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are.  The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now . . .

We cannot earn God’s love for it is a gift freely given. We are misunderstood by many for we live in a world that does not know God. We need not fear any one or any thing for we are children of God.  We are never alone or abandoned for we are loved now . . .

On this tenth day of Christmas, enter the words Children of God into the blog search bar and consider how we are Christmas children now . . .
