|In the Atrium today we celebrate the Epiphany, |
when the three wise men followed the star and found Jesus.
I was taught that Dr. Montessori, who was Catholic, read aloud the Epiphany's first reading, which began:
“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
2 See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
3 Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn."
What an exciting way to begin her work with children! And if you work with children--whether your own or with students at your school or parish--you already know that in each child God's image is made manifest in a unique way. And you already know that, somewhere along the way, you have learned so much more from the children than you've ever imparted.
I read about how the things we behold can change us and vice versa from Fr. Z's blog today:
Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He is the Father’s Beauty. He is Truth and Beauty and Glory itself.
So Happy Solemnity of the Epiphany, Ya'll!
