Sunday 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 Sunday when Christ was revealed to the gentiles, who in the person of the three Kings tradition tells us were from the corners of the (known) world. Sunday the 13th 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."
