Celebrate the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord.
Use this unit study to help teach children that the Wise Men brought gifts to Jesus. This lesson develops the theme that we can show others we love them with a gift, and it is based on the Gospel of St. Matthew 2:1-12.
In this week’s Gospel, we are reminded that giving gifts are a way to show love to others. Just as the Magi traveled from far away lands in order to visit and pay homage to Christ, we too can give a gift to show to love and respect to those who are important to us. We must remember that gifts do not need to be bought or extravagant to show we care about others.
