Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for January 5, 2020.
Description: On the Feast of Epiphany, we consider the humble adoration of the magi for the Christ child. The magi were Gentiles, and the Greek word “magi” meant oriental scientists. This bulletin insert for the Feast of Epiphany explains that, because they were not Jews, the determination of the magi to meet the Jewish savior says much about what the word “epiphany” means. The magi are good examples of believing in the importance of Jesus even without understanding what it would mean to them personally or to the rest of the world.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the Mass celebrating Epiphany on Sunday January 5, or a hand-out for religious education classes, faith sharing groups, RCIA class, etc.
