Today we remember the three wisemen who left all to follow a star, seeking the new-born king. They brought Him gifts. What am I giving Jesus this year on this feast?
Have I the courage to leave all to follow the star?
I love the reading from Isaiah 60: "rise up in splendor, Jerusalem! Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines upon you....Then you shall be radiant at what you see, your heart shall throb and overflow, for the riches of the sea shall be emptied out before you, the wealth of nations shall be brought to you ...."
I would like to share a quote from a dear RSCJ friend, Georgie Blaeser that appears on the cover of the Province Update for January.
"Gracious God, we ask your blessing upon us as we move along our journey in the new year.
Be our companion, O Guide of travelers, and spread the road before us with beauty and adventure..
May we take with us a heart wrapped in wonder so that we may rejoice in all that we shall meet."
