Franciscan Crown: Adoration of the Magi

We take a week off from actual Rosary mysteries and turn to the Adoration of the Magi, Epiphany or Theophany. The Magi come from the East and find Jesus as the destination where the star they were following brought them. Jesus reveals himself to the world that he is a part of the Godhead. In the Orthodox Church this is also tied to the Baptism in the Jordan where we hear the voice of the Lord saying “This is my beloved son.” I hope that we all can turn to Jesus with the same awe that the Magi brought. Some churches might offer some for of adoration, if you have some free time check them out or just come to church a little earlier or stay a little bit later on Sunday and sit in prayerful silence or pray in front of the Tabernacle for a little bit.
