Christmas Octave Day 5

December 29, 2020  Magi  Matt 2:10-11

They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

(Matthew never tells us how many Magi there were, only what gifts they brought)

What drew them across the unknown lands

From distant places

From foreign cities

To a strange country?

What urged them to travel onward

On swaying camels

On unmarked paths

In desert’s nighttime?

Where did they meet each other

These seeking sages

These stargazers

Who read the sky?

Did they share their stories

Of whispered urging

Of quiet longing

Inside their hearts?

Do we dare seek what they sought

To share longings

To search continually Are we so wise?
