Happy Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord!
A most joyful and glorious feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord! Today we commemorate the visit of the Magi, who saw Our Lord’s star in the East and came to pay their humble homage to the King of Kings. They presented to Him gold, frankincense and myrrh, which represented respectively His Kingship, His Divinity and the death that He would die for our sins.
Omnes de Saba vénient, aurum et thus deferéntes, et laudem Dómino annuntiántes.
All they from Saba shall come, bringing gold and frankincense and showing forth praise to the Lord.
from the Introit for today (Isaiah 60:6)
