Exploring the Epiphany

January 1, 2024 in Featured News, News

When we think of the feast of the Epiphany, we usually think of the three wise men coming from the East. People often joke that they arrived late with totally impractical gifts for a new mother who was forced to give birth to her son in a manger!

In this interview from our Religious Network News archive, Abbot Brendan Coffey of Glenstal Abbey talked with Marie Stuart about the origins of the feast. He explains how the Feast of the Epiphany highlights the revelation of God to us in different ways. He also suggests that just as the Wise Men followed a light to lead them to the Light, we are invited to use the stars and the lights we meet on our journey to guide us to the Light.
