St. Michael Catholic Church The Epiphany of the Lord, Year A By Rev. Robert Duck
Dromedaries. Magi. Sheba. Median. Ephah. Camels. These are not exactly typically things, places, and experiences in twenty-first century Oklahoma. And yet they show up in our readings, just as they do year after year as we celebrate the feast of Epiphany– that is, the feast of the manifestation of Jesus to the non-Jewish people who are represented in the Magi who are something like pagan scientists who come from the East, all found in these little statues over there, or perhaps in front of our manger scenes in our homes.
