Augustine For Today

January 6 - The Epiphany of the Lord

To us, too, the heavens have declared the glory of God; we, too, have been led to worship Christ by the truth blazing from the Gospel, as by a star from the sky. We, too, have received with ears of faith a prophecy that was famous in the Jewish nation, like a standing indictment of the Jews for not accompanying us. We, too, by acknowledging and praising Christ, as both king and priest and the one who died for us, have, as it were, honored him with gold and frankincense and myrrh. It only remains for us to spread the good news about him, by pursuing a new way, not returning by the way we came.
