“When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, ‘Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.’”
- Notice that the magi saw the star which led them beyond itself.
- Who/What are some “stars” in your life who/which have led you to Jesus, the Source of our Hope?
- Ask for the grace to become more sensitive to the message of a “star” today?
Heritage word—“The joy of Hope stirs up longings, makes us reach out to things beyond our grasp, makes us transcend ourselves.”
(Sr. Mary Anselm, 6thSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
