On the Epiphany

The Magi,the three wise men, were not men of faith.

Yet they followed the star, they came to find the Christ Child, to pay homage, to bear gifts of significance.

Why did they travel afar?

They came in trust. They had trust.

How much more should we, we people of faith, trust?

Do we put our complete trust in Our Lord or do we trust Him only when things go our way?

Let us learn a lesson from the Magi.

Let us trust Our Lord in the times of frankincense, in the times of gold...and yes, even in the times of myrrh.

(From a homily on the Epiphany, January 8, 2012, St Joseph's, Springvale, Fr Benedict M. LaVolpe, OFM Conv)
