Epiphany & Homily by St. Gregory the Great
Let us pray:
O GOD, who by the leading of a star didst manifest thy only-begottenSon to the Gentiles; Mercifully grant that we, who know thee now byfaith, may after this life have the fruition of thy glorious Godhead;through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Ephesians iii. 1. St. Matthew ii. 1.
A Homily by St. Gregory the Great
Dearly beloved brethren, ye have heard from the Gospel how, when theKing of heaven was born, an earthly king was troubled. For earthlygreatness is brought to confusion when the might of heaven is mademanifest. But let us ask a question: When the Redeemer was born, whywas it that, to the shepherds of Judaea, an Angel was sent to bringtidings thereof, whereas it was a star that led the Wise Men of theEast to worship him?
