Was there a good point made during the sermon you heard at your Mass of Obligation for this Sunday, Epiphany?
Let us know what it was!
For my part, I spoke about the various lights and “stars” which guide us in life. Some of these leader stars – stellae duces – are exterior and some interior. The exterior guides can be blessings received which can comfort and can also be challenges, which correct and get us back onto the correct path. We also have the help of authority, of the Church, of loved ones, of older people around us. We have interior stars in the promptings of the conscience and other inspirations. Some are dramatic, most are quite. We need quiet to hear them. Whenever we detect guiding stars we should obey them promptly, bravely, and with perseverance. The Wise Men followed God’s will in following the star. They also followed God’s will when they were told to return home “by another road”.
