1/5 – Eve of the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord

FEAST OF THE EPIPHANY

Epiphany, the 12th day after Christmas, celebrates the visit of the three kings or wise men to the Christ Child, signifying the extension of salvation to the Gentiles.  Epiphany is traditionally celebrated on January 6th. 

V3 – 1.6.00 –This morning I received Communion, and as I found myself together with Jesus, the Queen Mama also was there, and – oh! marvel – I looked at the Mother and I could see Her Heart Transmuted into Baby Jesus; I looked at the Son and I could see the Mother in the Heart of the Baby. In the meantime, I remembered that today is the Epiphany, and on the example of the Holy Magi, I was to offer something to Baby Jesus, but I saw myself as having nothing to give Him. So, in seeing my misery, the thought came to me of offering my body as Myrrh, with all the sufferings of the twelve years in which I had been in bed, ready to suffer and to remain there as long as He Pleased; as Gold, the pain I feel when He deprives me of His Presence, which is the most painful and sorrowful thing for me; as Incense, my poor prayers, United to those of the Queen Mama, so that they might be more Acceptable to Baby Jesus. So I made the offering, with all the confidence that the Baby would Accept everything.
