Through our Lord.

“Three mysteries mark this holy day: today the star leads the Magi to the infant Christ; today water is changed into wine for the wedding feast; today Christ wills to be baptized by John in the river Jordan to bring us salvation.”
Antiphon, Evening Prayer, Epiphany

The Adoration of the Magi

Not one but three epiphanies are celebrated in the sacred liturgy: the Adoration of the Magi, the Baptism in the Jordan, and the Wedding Feast of Cana. These events gradually manifest the glory of Jesus’ Incarnation to the whole world, not just to Mary and Joseph.

In the Gospel reading on the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time we visit a portion of the third epiphany over the course of the three years of the Sunday lectionary cycle. John 1:29-34 in Year A (2023, 2026, etc.), John 1:35-42 in Year B (2024, 2027, etc.) and John 2:1- 11 in Year C (2025, 2028, etc.).

Fortunately we get to hear about the Baptism in the Jordan today in the Ordinary Form since we celebrated “The Baptism of the Lord” last Monday in the Ordinary Form and last Friday in the Extraordinary Form. Going to Holy Mass every day, which is really a great idea, helps us keep an eye on the big picture. Otherwise, some extra effort on our part will fill in the gaps.

Reading and reflecting on John 1,29-2,11 today would be a good meditation to add to your prayer time today.

Happy Mardi Gras!
