Today is Epiphany. This date marks the second revealing of the Saviour. The first revealing was on Christmas when Christ was revealed by God to the Jews in the form of the shepherds. The second is today when Christ was revealed to the gentiles, in the person of the three Kings who tradition tells us were from the corners of the (known) world. Sunday the 11th will mark the third revelation at the Baptism of Christ. When the Holy Spirit appears in the form of a Dove, and the Voice of God is heard saying "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased."
