About Today Readings


Isaiah 60:1-6. Psalm 71(72):1-2, 7-8, 10-13. Ephesians 3:2-3, 5-6. Matthew 2:1-12.

Lord, every nation on earth will adore you—Psalm 71(72):1-2, 7-8, 10-13.

‘We saw his star …’

We all have to make the journey of the magi, to bring our worldly wisdom to the foot of the simple, innocent child. The wise men of the East brought gifts to the child: little did they realise what they were to be given! In our own lives, whenever we show kindness, thankfulness, courtesy, love, hope, we find that we have so much more given to us in the experience of giving.

It is wisdom to see the world and all it contains—people, animals, plants, stars, moon, sun, times, persons, places—with the vision of God, the creator of all that is. Lord, help me that I may touch the wonder of your presence in all that lives and moves and has its being.
