Today is January 6th.
As Catholic kids growing up in the Broxn and attending Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, it was always referred to as the Feast of The Epiphany. It was sometimes called Little Christmas as a recognition of the Three Wisemen bringing gifts to the infant Jesus.
I never understood what that had to do with an Epiphany.
Later, I understood it to mean that on this day Magi or Three Kins recognised the manifestatation of Jesus being God and the Messiah.
The ultimate AHA moment.
We now speak of epiphanies as revelations of another sort.
I had an epiphany when I was finishing my second year in college that I had to read books and attend class. Epiphanies aren’t always timely.
My second epiphany just occurred as I was typing this post.
I was about to write about the insurection of last year and the threat to American Democracy but I deleted everything I wrote.
You don’t need me to remind you what happened.
You don’t need me to suggest a viewpoint that might differ with yours.
I had another AHA moment and simly deleted my polemic as a fruitless endeavor to prove a point.
The point is already there for the viewing so do with it as you will.
