  • January 8, 2012 THE EPIPHANY OF THE LORD

    A MessageFrom the PastorDear Parishioners,Today, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Epiphany, when Christ manifested himself to the world through the visit of the magi. These wise men came to adore the Lord and to offer him their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. That is why in some countries like Italy and the Philippines, the exchange of gifts takes place today rather than on Christmas Day.Of course, the real gift has already been given with the Father sending his Son into the world to be its Savior. If you and I should enter heaven one day, then we will really know what a gift the Father has given us in giving us his Son, Jesus Christ.In the words of Psalm 116, How can I repay the LORD for all the good done for me? One way is to adore him in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. The magi came from afar bearing their gifts for the King of Kings. Shouldnt we come to adore him and offer him the gift of ourselves, which is the most precious gift we could offer him? We should. Most of us already know the joy of receiving our Lord in Holy Communion and having him dwell within us. Eucharistic adoration then is a natural outgrowth of that joy we feel. So, we should look for some time every now and then, if not on a regular basis, in which to express our thanks and our joy to the Lord by worshipping him in Eucharistic adoration. You will find it time well spent.Holy Rosary offers Eucharistic adoration every Friday after the 12:05 p.m. Mass until the 5:15 p.m. Mass. Still, praying in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament whether exposed or not is a source of grace. It helps us to feel close to the Lord, and we can adore him as the magi did of old.Speaking of gifts, I would like to thank everyone who sent me and the other friars Christmas cards and gifts. Its really overwhelming to receive such an outpouring of love. May God bless you for your kindness.
