Glory is revealed

epiphany giovanni di paola 1450
On Epiphany Day, God’s style was revealed to the world when the wise men made their visit to the baby Jesus. Matthew tells us that they followed a bright star to Bethlehem, and “on entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage” — they gave him glory. The wise men were the first to see that Jesus reveals the grace and love of God to the world in a bright and unmistakable way. He is a child who grows up to show God’s style in everything he says and does.

So Epiphany is all about the glory of God being revealed to the world.
