The Coming of the Magi
We had the custom of drawing "stars" - virtues really or maybe the fruits of the Spirit- on Epiphany. I shall prepare some for my community tomorrow and I am also adapting a tradition I found in a parish bulletin of going to each part of the home and saying a prayer to bless all the words and actions in that room during the year. I like the idea and so will do this with my community.
We had to take down all our Chrisstmas decorations this morning but I still have my little Infant Jesus in my room and a picture of a little child piping a song of joy to the Infant and will keep them out until February 2. We are still playing Christmas music.
