Did you know that today, January 6th, is the day of Epiphany and the beginning of the Season of Epiphany? (Yesterday, in case you weren't aware, was the twelfth, and last, day of Christmas.) Epiphany is a time of light and revelation.
I'm using a book in my quiet time that takes the reader through the Church year, using prayers and Scriptures for specific Holy days and seasons. I'm finding it a rich addition to my time of devotion.
The word epiphany means "the revealing" or "the showing forth." Here is the definition from Wikipedia:
Epiphany (from Koine Greek ἐπιφάνεια "appearance", "manifestation") is a Christian feast day which celebrates the revelation of God made Man in the person of Jesus Christ.
In the coming weeks of this season (it lasts six to nine weeks, depending upon when Easter falls in a calendar year, and ends on the day before Ash Wednesday), I'll be keeping my focus on recognizing Jesus as the Son of God and my need for Christ in my life.
Not a hard thing to do since I need Jesus so desperately.
