Welcome to Holy Name
Thank you for worshipping with us today.
Please visit our website www.holynametoronto.com for more detailed information on the parish and our faith.
Trying to share the details of an epiphany with another is fraught with complications. Most of us keep our personal experiences of the Holy to ourselves. Who would believe it or understand it? Ironically, epiphanies are made for sharing, even though they are impossible to communicate fully.
This is certainly the case of today’s extraordinary Gospel story for the solemnity of the Epiphany of our Lord Jesus Christ. Today the Church celebrates the adoration of Jesus by the Magi from the East: people of good will, open to God, ready to hear and follow God’s call, ever-willing to follow a star wherever it might lead. Open and starryeyed, they are naïve, guileless, easily taken in by self-serving priests and murderous kings. They are romantic, lovable figures, pursuing truth and searching for a deep, abiding joy that the world cannot give.
The star we follow today to the manager speaks to the mind and heart of each of us. The experience of the Magi reminds us that all who make the strenuous journey to the truth will finally encounter it and be changed in the process. They can never go back to “business as usual” in life. When we meet Christ and see who he really is, we will never be the same – an only then can we hope to begin to share in his mission.
