Devotions in honor of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ

II. The Star

Leader: "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, there came Magi from the East to Jerusalem, saying, 'Where is the newly-born King of the Jews?... For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him...' And behold, the star that they had seen in the East went before them, until it came and stood over the place where the Child was." (Matt. 2:1-2, 9)

All: "Arise, be enlightened, Oh Jerusalem: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall walk in thy light and kings in the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about and see; all these are gathered together; they are come to thee; thy sons shall come from afar." (Is. 60:1,3-4) Pater Noster...

Let us Pray

O God, Who (on this day) didst make Thine only-begotten Son known to the Gentiles by the guidance of a star, mercifully grant that we, who already know Thee by faith, may be brought to the vision of the beauty of Thy Majesty; through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
