Happy Sunday and Happy New Year!
At the gathering following Mass a young mother was asked how long it took to arrive to the church on Sunday morning..."Not long, only
two bus transfers!" She beamed with her two youngest in one stroller enjoying a baked goodie. Happy Epiphany, believers!! Here a young mother travels outside on a cold morning with two little ones under two, and two older children to get them to CCD
class, now there is a fresh picture of faith! Mary and Joseph traveled distances to live their faith. Then today we hear the word proclaimed again how the wise men traveled distances to meet the savior of the world. This year recall each
person is 'on the road' when you encounter them. We don't know if we will meet again, however with God all things are possible. When we see our role in bringing the light of Heaven to someone's path it is all more kind, more gentle and less competitive.
We are not meant to step over someone, but having met the Christ child and his parents opened our treasures and lift up others to step into the warmth of the manger. What child is this? The one that makes kings fall prostrate and shepherds
to be clothed in a dignity of a new kingdom! So come near one and all to the everlasting light, Jesus the prince of peace!
