The Epiphany

No specific events are associated with the Epiphany, rather it is commemorates the recognition by the world of Christ, as the message of Christmas, God appearing as a man spread out from Bethlehem.   Often in the Western Church, the Magi who visited Christ are associated with this day – as such they represent all believers from the Gentile world.

The Collect

God, by the leading of a star you manifested your only Son to the peoples of the earth: Lead us, who know you now by faith, to your presence, where we may see your glory face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
