Homily

If our celebration today has recalled an epiphany from our past, or spawned a new one, then the only thing left for us is to follow the star, consider the child, pay homage. We are the Magi in 2020, coming into light. If we make some room for the poor among us, especially the youngest, we will have brought a gift as well.
