Dear Friend in the Lord,

Magi – Search for Messiah: In today’s Gospel, the three wisemen who searched for the “Messiah to worship Him” were guided by the Star of BethlehemKing Herod, schemed to kill the Messiah, but failed miserably.  Ponder on, “When we search for the Messiah to worship Him, we will always find peace, fulfilment and joy, from God.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Matthew 2:1-3, 8, 9b-11

After Jesus had been born at Bethlehem in Judaea during the reign of King Herod, some wise men came to Jerusalem from the east. ‘Where is the infant king of the Jews?’ they asked. ‘We saw his star as it rose and have come to do him homage.’ When King Herod heard this he was perturbed, and so was the whole of Jerusalem. Then Herod sent them on to Bethlehem. ‘Go and find out all about the child’, he said ‘and when you have found him, let me know, so that I too may go and do him homage.’

          They set out. And there in front of them was the star they had seen rising; it went forward and halted over the place where the child was. The sight of the star filled them with delight, and going into the house they saw the child with his mother Mary, and falling to their knees they did him homage. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.
