“In our first reading on this Solemnity of the
Epiphany, we hear, ‘Rise up in splendour, Jerusalem! Your light has come, the glory of the
Lord shines upon you’ (Isaiah 60:1). Jesus is that
light and He now shines upon each of us.
“The Gospel tells the story of the Magi
from the East who travelled in search of Christ,
the new-born king. Again, we see this truth, the
God of all creation has come to the world, and
those of good will seek Him. The Magi travelled
over great distance and time to seek the new-born king. They found Him and
brought great gifts for Him. And they followed Him thereafter according to
right judgment, forsaking the lure and temptations of the culture and corrupt
government (cf. Matthew 2).
“The story of the Magi and the Revelation of the Christ-Child in what
we call the Epiphany is a wonderful occasion and opportunity to begin anew
our prayer life. There is much for us to meditate on here.
“Each of us can consider our own life, in one sense, as the journey of
the magi to find and give homage to the new king who is revealed to them –
and to us – as the Saviour of the world. So during the remaining week of
Christmastide, let’s jump-start our prayer lives by reflecting on this passage
and our lives.”
Lay Pastoral Visitors’ Training
Are you interested and available to help your parish to minister to the sick and the home-bound in your community? This
programme, of three Saturdays of six hours each, will prepare
you to provide pastoral visits and/or bring Holy Communion
to parishioners who are confined in their homes, nursing
homes and hospitals due to illness or infirmity. You can help
bring Catholic Social Teaching to life by responding to the
needs of the sick and the home-bound in a way that is both affirming and encouraging.

“A little "Thanks" to All”
A sincere attitude of gratitude is a beatitude for a safe Life Journey. I
thank you all for being part of my support system. Thank you for reminding me of my strengths when I feel so weak at times. Thank you for helping me to see the other side of the clouds when the rain comes in. May the
good souls of my Grandfather and Aunt Rest in Peace. With lots of
prayers Fr. Jimmy Joseph

Una stella ha guidato i Magi fino a Betlemme perché
là scoprissero “il re dei Giudei che è nato” e lo adorassero. Matteo aggiunge nel suo Vangelo: “Entrati
nella casa, videro il bambino con Maria sua madre, e
prostratisi lo adorarono”. Il viaggio dall’Oriente, la
ricerca, la stella apparsa ai Magi, la vista del
Salvatore e la sua adorazione costituiscono le tappe
che i popoli e gli individui dovevano percorrere nel
loro andare incontro al Salvatore del mondo. La luce
e il suo richiamo non sono cose passate, poiché ad esse si richiama la
storia della fede di ognuno di noi. Perché potessero provare la gioia del
vedere Cristo, dell’adorarlo e dell’offrirgli i loro doni, i Magi sono passati
per situazioni in cui hanno dovuto sempre chiedere, sempre seguire il
segno inviato loro da Dio. La fermezza, la costanza, soprattutto nella fede,
è impossibile senza sacrifici, ma è proprio da qui che nasce la gioia indicibile della contemplazione di Dio che si rivela a noi, così come la gioia di
dare o di darsi a Dio. “Al vedere la stella, essi provarono una grandissima
gioia”.Noi possiamo vedere la stella nella dottrina e nei sacramenti della
Chiesa, nei segni dei tempi, nelle parole sagge e nei buoni consigli che,
insieme, costituiscono la risposta alle nostre domande sulla salvezza e sul
Salvatore. Rallegriamoci, anche noi, per il fatto che Dio, vegliando sempre, nella sua misericordia, su chi cammina guidato da una stella ci rivela
in tanti modi la vera luce, il Cristo, il Re Salvatore.
