Epiphany of the Lord

 Epiphany of the Lord

The Journey of the Magi (1894) by James Jacques Joseph Tissot 

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea,
during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem
and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews?
We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” ~ Matthew 2:1-2

"Let us follow the star of inspiration and
divine attraction which calls us to the crib,
and let us go thither to adore
and love the Child Jesus
and offer ourselves to Him."
St Jane de Chantal

O, Come let us adore Him!
