Praying at Epiphany

Posted on Jan 6, 2020

‘Going into the house they saw the child with Mary, his Mother, and they fell down and worshipped him.’ We also kneel down before Jesus, God hidden in humanity. We tell him once more that we do not want to turn our backs on his divine call, that we shall never separate ourselves from him, that we shall remove from our path all that may be an obstacle to our fidelity and that we sincerely wish to be docile to his inspirations. You, in your own heart, and I in mine — because I am praying intimately with deep silent cries — are telling the child Jesus that we desire to fulfill our duties as well as the servants of the parable, so that we too may hear the response: ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’
