Your Gift Fit for a King (#808, Epiphany)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Epiphany of the Lord • The Magi respond to God’s love with their own gifts of love: gold for the true King, frankincense for the true God, and myrrh for the true sacrifice. At Christmas we receive God’s gift of love; at Epiphany we give back our own gift of love. Let us open our treasures and give God the gift of almsgiving, prayer, and sacrifice.

(7 Jan 2017)

Point to Ponder: Where did you see love this Christmas?

Point for Discussion: Talk to a friend about the treasure in your heart: what is most valuable to you, and how can you present that as a gift to Jesus?

Point of Action: Give God the gift of generosity, prayer, or sacrifice for this new year by starting a new habit in one of these three areas.
