January 6, Feast of the Epiphany.
The wise men wanted to know where the new king of the Jews had been born, and Herod, frightened, told them to search for the child and bring him word when they found him.
Jesus is still challenging the politicians, all these many years later. Some will also say they want to “go and pay him homage (Matt 2:8),” but do they really? Or, like Herod, is their real concern for their own power?
Do you hear that dream voice that spoke to the wise men, the one that says to resist the deception and live by the true Light.
