The feast of Epiphany offers us an insight into understanding the pilgrimage of our lives. Guided by the light of Christ we travel on our pilgrim path through this world to our destination in Heaven, learning life’s lessons along the way.
This homily was preached on December 7th, 2021 at Cathedral of Christ the King. May the Good News inspire us to fearlessly seek out the grace of the Sacrament of Penance as we reconcile our hearts to God.
Jesus teaches that one does not light a lamp and then cover it; rather, it is put on a stand so that all might see. May we uncover the gifts we have received and shine with Christ’s light in the world!
The Magi followed the light of the star to encounter the Light of the World as they responded with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. As we are drawn to the Light of Christ and encounter His grace, may we shine with His light for all to see!
The Gospel reveals how John the Baptist was sent to testify to Christ, the Light of the world. Following John’s example, we are called to testify to the Light…so that others will find Christ in our words and actions.
