6, Friday – The Epiphany
The Feast of the Epiphany is the celebration of the manifestation or the revelation of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, the Word, the Son as a human being in Jesus Christ. Although the Incarnation is celebrated with the Feast of the Annunciation on March 25th and the Nativity of the Son of God made Flesh is celebrated 9 months later on December the 25th, the manifestation of the Son is celebrated on January 6. The length of Epiphany season depends on the dating of Easter, but the Gospels for the Holy Communion during Epiphany mark some specific moment of epiphany in the life of our Lord. Thus the Gospel for the Feast of January 6 is the story of the of the Magi. That is followed by the Wedding of Cana, our of our Lord’s conversation with the doctors in the Temple at 12 years of age, baptism of Christ and the healing of the centurion’s servant.
