EPIPHANY OF THE LORD
DEAR PARISHIONERS and VISITORS:
PRAYER on the Feast of the Epiphany
This year the Catholic church in Canada celebrates the
Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord on Sunday January
3rd. The Catholic scripture scholar Scott Hahn says about the
Epiphany, “. . it signals the salvation of the whole world and
the restoration of the cosmic order, which had been disturbed
with the fall of humanity and of the angels.”
GOD OF LIGHT, GOD OF GLORY
the babble of infants
declares your strength
and the wise of the world
pay homage to the holy child.
Reveal your glory,
The great Scripture scholar of the 3rd century, Origen of
Alexandria, described the meaning of the gifts that the Magi
brought to the Christ child:
clothed as it is in the humanity
“Gold, as to a king; myrrh, as to one who was mortal; and
incense, as to God.”
as we behold the light of the nations
This symbolism makes sense because the Christ child
was at once king, man and God.
Jesus the Christ,
Try to plan some quiet time with the Lord on Epiphany
day or in the next few days and ask Him to let you know
what gift that He would like you to bring Him. Perhaps
it is a special time of adoration prayer each day, or some self
denial to deepen your prayer for someone else, or some act
of stewardship with the gifts that He has given to you. We
can be sure the Holy Spirit will help us to recognize and
humbly present our gift to the Lord and thus imitate the Magi
at the Epiphany.
Fr. Galvon
of Jesus of Nazareth.
May we have cause to rejoice
and the glory of your people Israel,
who is Lord for ever and ever.
Alleluia!
The Word of God dwells among us!
God is one with humankind!
Amen

Missa Brevissim a Gregoriana
Offertory: Cantate Dom ino (Choir)
Que te adoren, Señor, todos los pueblos
¡ Magos del oriente adoran a Jesús ! El pasaje de este
dom ingo presenta escenas llenas de m ovim iento y colorido.
El prim er capítulo de este evangelio responde a las
preguntas: " ¿ quién es Jesús y cóm o nació ? "; tam bién a:
" ¿ dónde y cuándo ? " San Marcos no se preocupa por
narrar las circunstancias del nacim iento de Jesús. Lo tom a
com o un hecho: fue en Belén de Judá. Con esta festividad
celebram os la universalidad de la Iglesia, la llam ada de los
paganos, representados por los Magos, a form ar parte
entre los seguidores de Jesús.
¡ Cuan consolador y esperanzador !
En el periódico, The B.C. Catholic con fecha 7 de Diciem bre
del 2015, viene en prim era plana que S.S. el Papa
Francisco abrió la puerta santa en un tem plo en Bangui,
República Central Africana el 29 de Noviem bre. Siendo que
el Año Jubilar de la Misericordia se iniciaría hasta el 8 de
Diciem bre, pero Su Santidad quiso abrir dicha puerta com o
signo de solidaridad con dicho país.
No cabe duda que Dios en su infinita Sabiduría y
Misericordia nos da la oportunidad de sentir m uy de cerca
su Am or por m edio del Vicario de Cristo. ¡ No
desaprovechem os la oportunidad de crecer día a día de
m anera integral !

+++++
¿ Cuál es la actitud de los sacerdotes y escribas ? Ellos que
conocen las escrituras, pues hasta son consultados por
Herodes acerca del lugar del nacim iento del Mesías y
responden correctam ente. Ellos son " personas de saber
", adem ás podrían ser capaces de indicar a los demás el
camino para encontrar a Jesús; pero ellos no se m ueven.
No van a la carrera a Belén, com o se esperaría de
personas que esperaban la venida del Mesías. Ellos
perm anecen cóm odam ente en sus casas. ¿ A quiénes
representan ? Seguram ente a m uchos de nosotros.

Stewardship Profile of the Week
CHUCK and SHIRLEY
Have been coming to the Cathedral
for 5 years.
Serve on the Saturday cleaning
crew and the Welcoming
Committee. Chuck also serves as
Eucharistic Minister and on the
Stewardship Committee.
Motto: “It’s a feeling you get while
you are serving and after you are
giving.... It’s about giving. You
receive from giving.
Thanks, Chuck and Shirley for your
loving and joyful acts of inspired
service.
STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION
Today we hear Saint Paul proclaim that he exercises
stewardship of “God’s grace” for the benefit of the Christian
com m unity. Earlier in this letter to the Ephesians, he prayed
they would com e to realize the actual value of “these riches”
of God’s grace they inherited. This letter was written to rem ind,
encourage, and spiritually m otivate this Eucharistic com m unity
to appreciate just how im m easurably wealthy they had
becom e to inherit a life in Christ. W hat value do we place on
our life in Christ? If som eone asked us to put a price on
this life in today’s currency, how would we respond? $100
m illion? $100 billion? Priceless? Do we live as though our life
in Christ is priceless?
