Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord

Sun., January 8, 2017 (All day) ·

Cardinal Wuerl will be the celebrant and homilist at the 11:30am Mass on Sunday, January 8, the Solemnnity of the Epiphany of the Lord.

"The Wise Men followed the star, and thus came to Jesus, to the great Light which enlightens everyone coming into this world (cf. Jn 1:9). As pilgrims of faith, the Wise Men themselves became stars shining in the firmament of history and they show us the way. The saints are God’s true constellations, which light up the nights of this world, serving as our guides. Saint Paul, in his Letter to the Philippians, told his faithful that they must shine like stars in the world (cf. 2:15)."  (from Pope Benedict XVI's Epiphany 2013 homily)
