The story of the wise men is fascinating. Like a jigsaw we only have a few of the pieces but we can still put together a very interesting picture of their story. The Epiphany is celebrated all over the world and yet their feast day (January 6th) comes at a time when most people are taking down their Christmas decorations!
It's fair to say that story of the three wise men gets a bit lost. I always have a soft spot for the three wise men! Yes we know some bits about the story and there is also so much more we don't know too. This adds to the mystery of the Magi and the reason why of their visit. I admire their sense of adventure, determination, courage, bravery and their willingness to take a risk. I am fully convinced their story has a message for all of us too especially during these difficult and challenging times that is Covid 19.
In this video I also touch in on one part of the story - that of the 4th wise man. There is a lot of speculation about him. From a spiritual point of view and as a way of a quiet moment of reflection you can become the 4th wise person! What is your take on the story of the Magi? Do you like their sense of adventure, their connection to the universe story, their ability to take a risk and to not have all the answers at once but knowing there is something meaningful out there. When you put all our stories together we get a wonderful tapestry.
