The Feast of the Epiphany centers on the visit of the Magi from the East. In that respect it is the “thirteenth day” of Christmas, yet it also marks the beginning of a new liturgical season. Where Christmas has focused on the Incarnation of our Lord—God becoming flesh—the Epiphany and its season emphasize the manifestation, or revelation, of God in the flesh of Jesus Christ.
The Lord Himself has entered our darkness. He is the sun who rises with the brightness of His true Light. He causes His word, the Gospel, to be proclaimed to all the people of the earth, Jew and Gentile.
As the Magi were guided by the promises of Holy Scripture to find and worship the Christ-Child with His mother, so He also calls disciples from all nations, through the preaching of His Word, to find and worship Him within His Church.
