An epiphany is a moment of revelation when something hidden comes to light. The Feast of the Epiphany celebrates three manifestations of the divinity of Jesus hidden in his humanity. First was in the worship of the infant Jesus by the Magi. Then at the commencement of the mission of Jesus, after his baptism in the Jordan, the voice of the Father was heard, ‘You are my Son, the Beloved’, next Sunday’s Gospel. The third epiphany was at the wedding in Cana, as he changed the water into wine, ‘he let his glory be seen and the disciples believed in him’, the Gospel for two Sundays hence.



Sr Nuala Glynn, Franciscan Missionaries of Mary will make a mission appeal in our church at the Masses next weekend.
