The Epiphany of Our Lord – The Manifestation of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Gentiles


The Epiphany - a detail image from one of the windows at St. John Cantius Parish, Chicago, Illinois


“Ab oriente venerunt magi in Bethlehem adorare Dominum. Et apertis thesauris suis, aurum sicut regi magno, thus sicut deo vero, myrrhae sepulturi eius, alleluia.”

Below is my rough translation into English:

From the east there came wise men to Bethlehem to adore the Lord.  They opened their treasures: gold for the Great King, frankincense for the True God, and myrrh for his burial. Alleluia.
