So What is an Epiphany?

Epiphanytide Blessings!  When we think of an ‘Epiphany,’ we think of an ‘aha’ moment–a moment of clarity or discovery.  The Feast of the Epiphany (Theophany in the East), is the feast of manifestation; the manifestation of Jesus as the Theoanthropos to the Magi, and in his baptism, and in his first miracle.

Epiphanytide is a gift to the Church and to the world because it continues the reflection of the Incarnation after the calendar has passed December 25th.  We don’t cease contemplating God becoming man because Christmas is over, we continue because our faith is meaningless without the reality that God became man to save us and to make us like himself.
