I hope you are enjoying a very happy, serene, and joyful Holiday Season. Here we are getting ready for the Epiphany on January 6th. Religiously this was the day when the three Magi, following a star, made their way to Bethlehem to pay respects to Jesus, the new born king of the Jews. The Kings Jasper, Balthazar and Melchior were astrologers from the Persian court and brought gifts of gold, frankincese and myrrh. Simbolically gold was a homage to Chirst as King, frankincesce a homage to his divinity and myrrh (which was used for embalming) was a foreshadowing of his eventual death.
