The Epiphany

The Manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles

And the city had no need of sun or moon to shine upon it; for the glory of God gave it light, and its lamp was the Lamb.
~Revelation 21:23

Adoration of the Magi, Nicola Pisano, c. 1260

O God, who by the leading of a star didst manifest thy only-begotten son to the gentiles; mercifully grant that we, who know thee now by faith, may after this life have the fruition of thy glorious Godhead; through the same thy son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
