“Then Herod called the magi secretly and ascertained from them the time of the star’s appearance. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, ‘Go and search diligently for the child. When you have found him, bring me word, that I too may go and do him homage.’”
- Imagine how the magi “read” Herod’s request.
- Since you know the sequence of events, what feelings surface in you as you hear what Herod said.
- How can this episode help you respond to uncomfortable situations you may find yourself in?
Heritage word—“Every prophet must pay the price of her/his call. Our deep rootedness in God is what gives us the courage and faith to keep moving forward with hope, no matter what happens. It is through our “God-experience” that we are converted to see this new vision.”
