At Epiphany, the Church honors the Three Kings (Astrologers) from the East. Our modern culture glamorizes them. They were looking for the New Born King; they recognized His Sign – the STAR. Yet, my personal opinion prevents me from calling then genuinely “wise men”. There is no mention of these three men after they leave Bethlehem (by another route) in Matthew’s Gospel, and no mention of them in any other Gospel. The question I am faced with in my own life is: Can I, truly encounter the CHRIST and not be dramatically changed?
