As we gently say goodbye to Christmas we look forward in hope. We were reminded during Wednesday's feast day of the Epiphany how the wise men went home in a different direction. They changed course, changed plans, adapted to changing circumstances and went with new beginnings.
All our lives have been changed because of Covid 19. During this current third wave of the pandemic many are fearful and worried. Many are wondering will it ever end. The wise men were led by God to safety, security and new beginnings. We pray for so many who are genuinely worried about the current situation, about loved ones in hospital and nursing homes and worried about their own safety.
