Pope Francis’ Homily on the Solemnity of the Epiphany
Pope Francis’ Homily on the Solemnity of the Epiphany at the Vatican – January 6, 2018
Three actions of the Magi guide our journey towards the
Lord, who today is revealed as light and salvation for all peoples. The Magi see the star, they set out and they bring gifts.
Seeing the star. This is where it starts. But why, we might ask, did the Magi alone see the star? Perhaps because few people raised their eyes to heaven. We often make do with looking at the ground: it’s enough to have our health, a little money and a bit of entertainment.
