The Epiphany of the Lord

Solemnity

 

What Is An Epiphany?

The word “epiphany” means an appearance or manifestation. It can also mean to have a sudden awareness or understanding of something. In the Church, it is a solemnity traditionally celebrated twelve days after Christmas on Jan. 6; however, it may often be observed on the Sunday between Jan. 2 and Jan. 8. This event commemorates the Magi from the East finding the Child Jesus, the Messiah. This beautiful moment solidifies the idea that Christ is to be made known to all peoples – Jews as well as Gentiles.

According to Mother Church, the three events of the adoration of the Magi, the Lord’s Baptism, and the wedding at Cana complete the full epiphany that Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of the world.
