The Feast of the Epiphany

Reflection by Father Joseph Diele

The feast of the Epiphany is again celebrating the image of light coming into the world. The darkness gives way to the light. Read John 1:1-5.  What role has darkness and light played in your life?  Were you ever scared of the dark? Are you scared of the dark now?  God is light!  God created light long before God had created the sun the moon and the stars.  God is that energy which is energy-light. We Christians are saying ‘Light’ came into the world.  That creator God that makes light to be light is a light to the world “Light from light.”  We share in this Divine light.  On this feast we are saying the whole world all people, all creation can receive of the light who is God.

Epiphany means manifestation.  God is made manifest in our world.  The light of God is here now for all of us.  If we did not get it in the feast of Christmas here, it is again for us to reflect on the light that comes into the world.

-What do we feel of the light of God?

-What does it feel like to have the energy of God, the power of God given to us?

-What does it mean to be the brightness of God?

-In what ways have our communities called us to be Gods’ light?
