Homilies: Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord

My homily for the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord as preached during the 9.30 am Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Isaiah 60:1-6; Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-5; Matthew 2:1-12.

“Like the Magi, many people know they are seeking something ‘more’ because of something within themselves, or because of their own ‘wisdom’, or because of something beyond themselves like science. Also like the Magi, those who are seeking will not truly encounter the Divine until they encounter the Word of God. Our task, as Christians, is to be the living embodiment of the Word of God that allows those who are seeking to come to know that which they are seeking.”
