WEEKLY UPDATE

January 6 to January 10, 2020

HAPPY THREE KINGS!

Epiphany,  also known as "Three Kings Day" and "Twelfth Day," is commemorated on January 6. It falls on the twelfth day after Christmas.  The feast celebrates the manifestation of God in the form of human flesh through Jesus Christ, his Son.

 

The word “epiphany” comes from the Greek epiphainen, a verb that means "to shine upon," "to manifest," or “to make known.” Thus, the feast of the Epiphany celebrates the many ways that Christ has made Himself known to the world, mainly the three events that manifested the mission and divinity of Christ:  the visit of the Magi (Matthew 2:1-12), the baptism of Jesus (Mark 1:9-11), and the miracle at Cana (John 2:1-11). 

 

The visit of the Magi is emphasized on Epiphany Day, and Christ's baptism is celebrated the first Sunday that follows.
