THIS WEEK we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany (the twelfth day of Christmas) commerorating the Three Magi's arrival into Bethlehem to honor the baby Jesus as 'King of Kings.' We reluctantly remove the holiday lights and decorations in order to return to a normal routine and get on with our everyday life. More commonly, epiphanies are those "aha!" moments of sudden revelation or insight -- moments of truth -- that don't happen often. But can we recognize and act on those special moments when they occur?
We naturally love newborns as innocents who embody goodness for the future and an unspoiled world. It's my hope that our futures may be so bright! How far can we carry that 'holiday spirit' into the new year?
