The Epiphany of the Lord

ON THE PERIPHERY OF JOY

Only in being willing to risk everything for the truth, will my heart “throb and overflow” with the “riches of the sea.”

HOPE THAT PURIFIES

I often miss the horizon for all the water in the way. So my struggle today is to remain in the hope that purifies.

The Baptism of the Lord

DARE TO DIVE IN

“A bruised reed he shall not break, and a smoldering wick he shall not quench…  I have grasped you by the hand.”  - Is. 42:3,6

"…He was not baptized because he needed to be purified, but so that he might bring sanctity to the waters themselves." ---St. Gregory Nazianus

In life and in death, Jesus went first to show us that greater life was possible and to encourage us to take the risk. What might it feel like to dive in and take the risk to be with Him?

WILLINGNESS TO MOVE?

"Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to worship him.” - Mt 2:2

King Herod and the Magi represent two opposite attitudes in all of us towards light in today’s Gospel. The Magi were open to something new.

OPEN OUR EYES AND HEARTS

"There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding." – Jn 2:1

If we can shift our focus away from trying to measure up, we may just find God working in our lives, constantly loving us from a place of abundance, always providing more than enough for us.

ST. JOHN NEUMANN SHARES LOVE THOUGH FACETIME

"This is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another…” – 1 Jn. 3:11

How are we personally invited to listen to Jesus more? To follow Him more? To lay down our lives more? To love each other more? How may the world look differently doing so?
