Epiphany: The Journey From Restless Questioning To Humble Worship
As the Church celebrated the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord on Friday, Pope Francis presided over Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, and reflected on the journey of the Magi.
He focused on three ways in which we can encounter the Lord in our daily lives: restless questioning, the risk of the journey, and the wonder of worship.
The first place we should seek the Lord, said the Pope, is in “restless questioning”, which helps us put aside our apathy and confront life’s important questions.
“The exciting adventure of the Wise Men from the East teaches us that faith is not born of our own merits, thoughts and theories.”
A probing mind, added Pope Francis, challenges us to yearn for the infinite and set out on a “quest for the transcendent that inspires the progress of civilizations”.
