Sunday 7th January – The Epiphany

Published: 6th January, 2024

This Sunday we celebrate the feast of the Epiphany, which marks the Visit of the Magi to the infant Christ.  The Epiphany is not only a feast day but a whole liturgical season, lasting until Candlemas, and on each Sunday during this season we celebrate a particular moment of clarity in the early parts of Jesus’ ministry: as well as the Visit of the Magi, in which Jesus is revealed as the universal Saviour, we reflect on the call of the first disciples and the wedding at Cana in Galilee.  This year, sadly, the Baptism of Christ gets lost because of the way the calendar falls out, but that too is a story associated with the Epiphany season.  What these stories have in common is that each of them marks a moment of revelation in which Jesus’ glory, and the scope of His mission, is revealed.
