Epiphany of the Lord (Three Kings Day) On December 29, the Holy Eucharist was stolen from the Most Blessed Sacrament Perpetual Adoration Chapel in Oshkosh, WI. Since Jesus is really present in the Eucharist, was this a theft, or a kidnapping?
I recount for you the miraculous recovery of a stolen host in Cowley, Alberta. Father and the other searchers had a Eucharistic "epiphany."
The magi search for the newborn King of the Jews among a people who are not excited for his birth. The can see the light that the Jewish people cannot see. They continue to believe in the value of the gift even when others do not value Him.
Every Sunday, you come here to pay homage to the King of Kings and to place your gifts before Him. I pray that every Sunday might be an Epiphany moment for you. We all believe that Jesus is the answer, but when the rest of the world doesn't seem to value him, we can begin to doubt what we have here. Pray to see the Eucharist in a new light. Pray that we can each have a "Eucharistic Epiphany."
