Today the Church celebrates the solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord. Over 2,000 years ago, the Savior of the world was revealed to the magi. This represented the fact that Jesus was the savior of all people, not just the Israelites.
There are many people in the world who do not know Christ. Some may know facts about Him, but they don’t know Him. Contrary to our initial perception, not all of these individuals live in remote corners of the world. Unfortunately, many of them are Catholic and members of other Christian churches. Many of them are our family members, friends and co-workers.
If we know Jesus, it is up to us to spread the “Good News” to these individuals by our example and our words. As illustrated by the Epiphany, Jesus is the Savior of all people and needs to be shared with others. If we really love others, why would we want to keep Christ to ourselves?
“You may be the only Jesus your neighbor will ever see.” (Mother Angelica)
