The Epiphany of the Lord
In Choosing to be Born for Us, God Chose to be Known by Us
A sermon by St Peter Chrysologus
For us, Christ is everything. We
begin in each day in his presence.
We are his people, from many
walks of life, and from many
nations and languages. We
adore the Lord, address him with
the psalms of our ancestors and
enter the sacred Liturgy, the
source and summit in our life in
Christ. Through our Catechetical
programs we pass on the faith
both to adults and children,
training in holiness which calls us
to a Holy life distinguished above
all in the art of prayer. Rising from
prayer we minister to the needs of
those who ask our help, with food
and other assistance. We are the
people of St. Edward Catholic
Church in Newark, California.
Christ is everything. If you have a
wound to heal, he is the doctor; if
you are in need of help, he is
strength; if you fear death, he is
life; if you desire Heaven, he is
the way; if you are in the
darkness, he is light. Blessed are
they who hope in him!
In the mystery of our Lord’s incarnation there were clear
indications of his eternal Godhead. Yet the great events we
celebrate today disclose and reveal in different ways the fact that
God himself took a human body. Mortal man, enshrouded always
in darkness, must not be left in ignorance, and so be deprived of
what he can understand and retain only by grace.
In choosing to be born for us, God chose to be known by
us. He therefore reveals himself in this way, in order that this great
sacrament of his love may not be an occasion for us of great
Today the Magi find, crying in a 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 stars.
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 whole 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.
So the Gentiles, who were the last, become the first: the
faith of the Magi is the first fruits of the belief of the Gentiles.
Today Christ enters the Jordan to wash away the sin of the
world. John himself testifies that this is why he has come: Behold
the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the
world. Today a servant lays his hand on the Lord, a man lays his
hand on God, John lays his hand on Christ, not to forgive but to
receive forgiveness.
Today, as the psalmist prophesied: The voice of the Lord is
heard above the waters. What does the voice say? This is my
beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.
Today the Holy Spirit hovers over the waters in the likeness
of a dove. A dove announced to Noah that the flood had

(Continued from page 1)
disappeared from the earth; so now a dove is to
reveal that the world’s shipwreck is at an end
forever. The sign is no longer an olive-shoot of
the old stock: instead, the Spirit pours out on
Christ’s head the full richness of a new
anointing by the Father, to fulfil what the
psalmist had prophesied: Therefore God, your
God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness
above your fellows.
Today Christ works the first of his signs
from heaven by turning water into wine. But
water has still to be changed into the sacrament
of his blood, so that Christ may offer spiritual
drink from the chalice of his body, to fulfil the
psalmist’s prophecy: How excellent is my
chalice, warming my spirit.
The first reading today is charged with the glory of the
Lord. Everyone who can come to the holy city does
come—whole caravans of people of all ages on foot and
on dromedaries and camels. This description of an irresistible light-filled city prepares us for the story of the
magi. They are guided by their own lights—their study of
astronomy and astrology—and by the light of a peculiar
star. Their study tells them that an unusual event in the
heavens is a sign of an extraordinary birth on earth. They
mean to find out about this, and they set out with gifts
worthy of a king. They are welcomed into an insignificant
house in Bethlehem, offer gifts befitting a king, and receive the gift of faith. Paul reinforces the great gift of faith
available to the Gentiles, whom the magi represent. What
they have seen has changed them, just as it changed
Paul and all who heeded his proclamation. Like the magi
and like Paul, we are invited to receive this life that is
filled with the light of faith. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

Missa Do Epifania Do Senhor
Comentário: Caminhamos à tua luz! Celebramos a festa
da Epifania: este vocábulo grego significa "manifestação".
Exemplo de uma manifestação é quando se faz um evento
que chegue ao conhecimento do maior número de pessoas
possível; pode ser uma manifestação de protesto, de
solidariedade, ou mesmo uma representação teatral. No que
diz respeito a festa que a Igreja hoje celebra, estamos diante
de uma manifestação de Deus. É a festa na qual Deus se
manifesta a todos os povos. Ele quebra o vínculo com o
povo de Israel para estendê-lo a toda a humanidade. A
manifestação de Deus em Jesus não é destinada a um
grupo restrito de pessoas, mas inclui todo o mundo como
mostra o texto evangélico.
Nele, aparecem três grupos de pessoas e sua relação com o
recém-nascido em Belém: os magos, Herodes e os doutores
da Lei e os escribas. O termo "mago" é muito vago, mas de
certo modo, refere-se aos espertos na observação dos
astros, aos astrólogos. Tinham conhecimento da espera
messiânica pelos judeus e tendo recebido uma indicação do
nascimento do Messias, põem-se a caminho. Conhecem a
direção, mas não sabem exatamente o que os espera. Estão
a caminho. Vêm do Oriente e enfrentam todos os incômodos
de uma viagem cansativa até Belém em busca do Messias
que nasceu. Representam todos os pagãos, chamados a
crer em Cristo. Representam todos nós. Representam a
caminhada de todos os povos, anunciada pelo profeta Isaías
na I leitura: "os povos caminham à tua luz e os reis ao clarão
de tua aurora" (Is 60,1-6). A viagem dos magos é imagem
do caminho de fé e de esperança que o homem de cada
tempo realiza até Deus. A fé é sempre uma busca. Aquele
que crê está sempre a caminho.
Chegando em Jerusalém, são enviados a um outro lugar.
Agora, sabem com mais precisão onde podem encontrar o
rei. De fato, os escribas são espertos na Sagrada Escritura e
dela deduzem o lugar de nascimento do Messias, Belém
da Judeia: "E tu, Belém, terra de Judá, de modo algum és a
menor entre as principais cidades de Judá, porque de ti
sairá um chefe que vai ser o pastor de Israel, o meu povo".
Os magos, que são pagãos, perseveram na busca do rei,
pondo-se de novo a caminho.
Por sua vez, os escribas para quem nasceu o rei, mostramse indiferentes. Assim, o texto bíblico apresenta um grande
contraste: os de fora (magos) buscam e encontram o
Salvador e os de dentro (Herodes e os habitantes de
Jerusalém) ficam indiferentes, rejeitam, têm medo. Herodes
que defendia seu reino com violência e era odiado pelos
judeus porque favorecia o império romano, agora, sente-se
incomodado pela notícia do nascimento do rei dos judeus.
Ele queria matar o menino, como demonstra a matança dos
inocentes. Herodes significa todos aqueles que são tão
apegados aos próprios interesses que não deixam nenhum
espaço para este menino; consideram a este importuno e
Finalmente, a luz guia os magos até o menino; essa luz é
símbolo de Cristo, luz do mundo. Ele nos chama a si através
de uma grande variedade de sinais e indicadores luminosos,
como a Palavra de Deus. Os magos veem o menino, dão-se
conta que Ele não apresenta nenhum poder externo,
nenhum esplendor; mas mediante a fé, O reconhecem como
Rei, Senhor e Pastor da humanidade. Seus presentes
também são uma forma de reconhecimento: ouro, incenso e
mirra. Ouro destinado aos reis, incenso destinado a Deus e
mirra, planta medicinal de onde se extrai uma resina, que
misturada a óleos, era usada como óleo curativo, cosmético
e unções religiosas: Jesus é o Messias, o Cristo, o Ungido.
Os magos do Oriente não eram nem reis, nem três, nem se
chamavam Gaspar, Melquior e Baltasar como apresenta a
tradição popular. Isto não corresponde ao texto bíblico.
Porém, esta tradição corresponde ao espírito do Evangelho.
São representados por um jovem, um adulto e um ancião;
um asiático, um europeu e um africano (o mundo de então,
já que as Américas e a Oceania não tinham sido
"descobertas".). Tudo isto para significar que todas as
idades e todas as pessoas caminham em direção a esta
estrela que é Cristo, luz do mundo.Jesus veio para todos
nós: para os jovens e os idosos, para os sábios e os
simples, para as pessoas de qualquer cor e de qualquer
forma de vida, a fim de mostrar-nos Deus como Nosso Pai e
ser uma Luz para a nossa vida. Como magos, não devemos
deixar nos desviar do caminho que é Jesus, e sim sermos
guiados por Deus, até atingirmos a meta. Podemos estar
longe ou podemos estar perto, mas que estejamos a
caminho! - Dom Henrique Soares de Costa

Mary, Virgin and Mother,
you who, moved by the Holy Spirit,
welcomed the word of life
in the depths of your humble faith:
as you gave yourself completely to the Eternal One,
help us to say our own “yes”
to the urgent call, as pressing as ever,
to proclaim the good news of Jesus.
Filled with Christ’s presence,
you brought joy to John the Baptist,
making him exult in the womb of his mother.
Brimming over with joy,
you sang of the great things done by God.
Standing at the foot of the cross
with unyielding faith,
you received the joyful comfort of the resurrection,
and joined the disciples in awaiting the Spirit
so that the evangelizing Church might be born.
Obtain for us now a new ardour born of the resurrection,
that we may bring to all the Gospel of life
which triumphs over death.
Give us a holy courage to seek new paths,
that the gift of unfading beauty
may reach every man and woman.
Virgin of listening and contemplation,
Mother of love, Bride of the eternal wedding feast,
pray for the Church, whose pure icon you are,
that she may never be closed in on herself
or lose her passion for establishing God’s kingdom.
Star of the new evangelization,
help us to bear radiant witness to communion,
service, ardent and generous faith,
justice and love of the poor,
that the joy of the Gospel
may reach to the ends of the earth,
illuminating even the fringes of our world.
Mother of the living Gospel,
wellspring of happiness for God’s little ones,
pray for us.
Amen. Alleluia!
Pope Francis
