FAITH BOOK 

THE EPIPHANY OF THE LORD JANUARY 7, 2017

Isaiah 60: 1-6; Psalm 72; Ephesians 3: 2-3a, 5-6; Matthew 2: 1-12

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Isaiah reading:

 

See, darkness covers the earth,

And thick clouds cover the peoples;

But upon you the Lord shines,

And over you appears God’s glory.

 

Reflection:

 

Isaiah reminds us that believers will experience God’s "shining" through the darkness. Because of that light in believers, others will "walk by your light." He is speaking of the Gentiles. God is reaching out to non-believers through the light that shines from believers.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • How and where do I experience the darkness in the world?

  • How can I let the light of God shine through to others who are in the darkness?
