The Epiphany of the Lord

We saw his star. (Mt 2:2)

We are seekers. We are on a journey in search of our God.

Sometimes we see him. We see him in creation. We see him in a baby’s smile, a sunset, and the kindness of strangers.

The Eucharist.

We hear him in a bible verse, a homily, and a song.

But we are not able to grasp God. We cannot make Him little like us. We cannot make complete sense of Him. We can only search.

Sometimes we think we find our God. We see a light shining in our lives. And like the three magi, we find ourselves on a new path. We live our lives a little differently.

And we go home another way.

We are seekers.

Lord, may we never stop searching for you. May we find you in all of the ups and downs of our daily lives. Help us to be open to your presence in many unexpected ways. And at the end of our earthly life, may we live with you for all eternity. And may we see you face to face. Amen.
