On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they knelt down and paid him homage.
They opened their treasure chests and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. (Matthew 2:1)
Every day is an epiphany in which I, too, can pay Him homage. I can kneel before you and offer my gifts:
I bring my gratitude for you, my desire to grow more loving, more caring. My desire to live justly, my commitment to be generous…
As we begin a New Year, what gifts have I to offer to help make the world a better place for all?
Closing prayer: Thank you Father for Jesus the Light of the world. Help us to follow him each day. Help us to be mindful of your people
throughout the world in their various struggles at this time. In You we put our trust. Amen
