Reflection for Jan. 4, 2015

Does my 'star' guide people to Jesus Christ?

by Sister Agnes Fischer

Where is the newborn King of the Jews?

If the Magi of today -- that is, men and women of goodwill -- were to ask that question would we tell them that He can be found:

In these, Jesus is waiting to receive the gold of our help, the incense of our respect and the myrrh of our understanding and love. To find this Jesus, we don't have to leave our land, we simple have to leave our comforts, our routine, our likes and interests and maybe our security. Are we Magi enough for this?



Aggie, your reflection has a lot of thought to it. I pray in the coming year I will look at people and see Jesus!

Dear Aggie,
I truly appreciate the gift of your reflection. I like the analogies for gold, frankincense and myrrh and want to think of other meaningful comparisons.
