THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany. It marks the
appearance of Jesus to the Gentile word and to those who represent all
the nations of the earth. The prophet Isiah looks forward to the day
when the Lord, present in Jerusalem, will attract nations from many
places who come to pay him homage. "Above you the Lord now rises and
above you his glory appears. The nations come to your light and kings to
your dawning brightness….camels and throngs will cover you and
dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; everyone win Sheba will come bringing
gold and incense and singing the praise of the Lord." The psalm presents
a very similar picture as it describes how foreign kings gather to pay
tribute to the new king of the people of God. "The kings of Tarshish
shall pay him tribute. The kings of Sheba and Seba shall bring him
gifts. Before him all kings shall fall prostrate, all nations shall
The wise men who came to Jerusalem from the east fulfilled these
promises. They are the first of the nations, of the Gentile world who
came to do reverence to Jesus, "the infant king of the Jews." A star led
them to the place where Jesus was. They entered the house, "saw the
child with his mother Mary, and falling on their knees they did him
homage. Then opening their treasures, they offered him gifts of gold,
frankincense and myrrh." They were the first to come from afar to do
homage to Jesus, and bring him gifts. In our worship of Jesus, too, we
bring him gifts that do as gifts always do, represent the gift of the
giver to the Lord. May we always do homage to the new born king in the
same spirit as the wise men did.
