THE HOLY STAR
O Father, may that holy star
Grow every year more bright
And send its glorious beams afar
To fill the world with light.
—William Cullen Bryant
PARTNERS IN THE PROMISE
As a society, during these days we can be in something
of a “postpartum” depression. Our celebrations of Christmas and the New Year are over, and after today many of us
will put away the decorations and the last visible remnants
of the celebrations of the past weeks. The apostle Paul today uses the expression “partners in the promise.” This is
an uplifting phrase for us to reflect upon, and to think of as
our own calling in these days following the birth of the
Lord. What is this promise? We can find it in the gifts the
magi bring: it is a promise of being a royal priesthood
(gold), a holy nation (frankincense), a people set apart for
self-giving (myrrh). We find more of the promise in
Isaiah—a light shines upon us! In the psalm we know a
promise of a world of flowering justice, profound peace, the
poor rescued, pity for the lowly and the poor. This is the
promise; and one of the best ways for us to lift ourselves out
of any possible low spirits we may be suffering is to live out
our partnership in this promise each and every day.

GENTLENESS
Feelings are everywhere—be gentle.
—J. Masai
The Epiphany of the Lord
"They departed for their country by another way." Things
were different now. An encounter with the baby Jesus
changed the Magi. Before finding the child, they had made
a secret alliance with a worldly king, Herod. But after seeing
this infant resting in the arms of Mary, their allegiance
shifted. Now they became servants of the little Lord Jesus.
They had a kind of conversion through their encounter with
Christ, and they knew that they could no longer serve the
whims of a wicked ruler.
We call this Sunday "Epiphany" because that's what the
three wise men had: an epiphany, a moment of realizing the
truth about God. In this moment these three men--kings that
they were--"prostrated themselves and did him homage" to
the King of Kings. Then they went home by a different
route, undoubtedly as different men. Now, their own authority as worldly leaders took on a new character. Now, they
were men who served a power greater than themselves. As
it was prophesied in the Old Testament reading from Isaiah,
even kings would walk by the "shining radiance" of the Lord.
Let us ask ourselves today how the Epiphany of the Lord
can redirect us. What worldly allegiances have we made
that need to be changed? Are we servants of our neighbors'
good opinion or of the power of money? Are we secretly
aligned with popularity or prestige? No matter what "rules"
our hearts, we are invited to change our direction. We are
invited to encounter the little Lord Jesus and offer ourselves
to his gentle and loving guidance. After all, his is a kingship
of concern for us. As today's psalm says, this King "shall
rescue the poor when he cries out, and the afflicted when
he has no one to help him."
TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
Epiphany celebrates the wake‑up calls of life, the
showings of God’s majesty and power in the person of Jesus. The feast alerts us to look for signs of the Lord’s grace
and action in our lives today. In this context, the call of the
Second Vatican Council to reform the sacramental life of
the Church, including our pattern of care for the sick, is
indeed a holy awakening.
Prior to the 1960s, our care for the sick had collapsed in
the popular imagination into something everyone called
“last rites.” An immensely complicated ritual, with anointing accompanied by quickly muttered Latin prayers, was
enacted for a marginally conscious person at “death’s door.”
By the time a priest was called, the sick person might not
be able to receive viaticum, or derive much personal benefit
from the ritual. The healing effects of the sacrament, investing suffering with the dignity of a link to Christ’s cross, and
the immense assurance of forgiveness for a person reviewing the life journey, were hidden. Suddenly, an epiphany
swept through the Church, and the way we care for the
sick was utterly transformed. It took several centuries,
however, for the Church to reach that moment of renewal.
