On the Feast of the Epiphany Fr. Elias preaches on how the New Jerusalem is made manifest to the world in the symbols of the Star and the Three Wisemen that came from afar, following the heavenly light to find the Christ Child who is Light Himself. This great event heralds the universal nature of the New Jerusalem, the Catholic Church, which draws people of all nations with the light of the Gospel and the Divine Presence in the Eucharist. Father relates this to the Luminous Mysteries, that is, the mysteries of Epiphany: 1. the Baptism, 2. the miracle at the wedding feast, 3. the preaching of the Kingdom of God, 4. the Transfiguration at Mt. Tabor, and 5. the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper. Mary, Star of the New Evangelization, pray for us. Ave Maria!
