We have reached the twelfth day of Christmas, when the Church traditionally celebrates the Epiphany (that is, Manifestation) of the Lord to all the nations. See our “Homily Page” on our website for more details about this great feast.
Many parts of the world now celebrate the Epiphany on the Sunday following January 6th, so that more of the faithful can participate in the Mass of the day.
At the Monastery we keep January 6th as the day of the Epiphany.
Today’s photo is from our Nativity display in our church, which now includes the “Wise Men from the East,” who came from afar to worship the Holy Child Jesus.
With this comes assurance of our prayers for “peace on earth,” and the end to war.
Blessed and happy Feast of the Epiphany!
Abbot Christian and the monks
