The word Epiphany means manifestation. Christ is revealed to the non Jews, the Gentile world. In the Liturgy of the Hours (the Breviary) the three manifestations are mentioned: The Wise men visiting the Christ child, the Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist and the marriage feast of Cana where Jesus changes the water into wine. Each event reveals the true identity of Jesus. In the Orthodox tradition the feast of Epiphany is their Christmas. As we begin a new year let us ask the Lord to draw each one of us closer to him. Through our worship may we deepen our faith as Jesus comes to us in Word and Sacrament.
