“After their audience with the king they set out. And behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them, until it came and stopped over the place where the child was. They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage.”
- Observe the magi when they arrive at “the place where the child was.”
- Pay attention to their response upon seeing the Child and His mother.
- Allow your feelings to lead you into contemplation of this part of the Christmas event.
Heritage word—“The wonderful truth is that God wants to reveal to us the glory of his only begotten Son…He wants us to greet him with grateful hearts and minds filled with faith.”
(Sr. Mary Joell, 8thSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
