|"Adoration of the Magi", Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510)|
Gerry Straub has a very moving Epiphany post, "Hidden Among the Stars"
, over on his blog today which includes this beautiful quote from St. Peter Chrysologus:
“Today the Magi find, crying in the manger, the one they have followed
as he shone in the sky.
Today the Magi see clearly, in swaddling
clothes, the one they have long awaited as he lay hidden among the
Today the Magi gaze in deep wonder at what they see: heaven on
earth, earth in heaven, man in God, God in man, one whom the universe
cannot contain now enclosed in a tiny body.
As they look, they believe
and do not question, as their symbolic gifts bear witness: incense for
God, gold for a king, myrrh for one who is to die.”
- St. Peter Chrysologus
