Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord

Matthew 2: 1-12
Love incarnate is not always welcomed by the world. It is too messy for the powerful; it threatens their control. But like the magi, we cannot deny its existence. We must approach it with our gifts and praise God for its presence. The world will fight back in fear, and may even seem to win at times. But know always that love will not be denied its victory.
