Feast of the Magi

Today is Three Kings Day, Twelfth Night, the Feast of the Magi, and the end of Christmas. It's time for one final celebration which marks the arrival of the Magi in Bethelem to bring gifts to the infant Jesus.

And so Christmas ends as it began, with the Three Kings. Christmas season began for me this year at an Evensong service at Cologne Cathedral in Germany, seated in the church choir, nearby the golden shrine of the Three Kings that has made Cologne a famous pilgrimage site for over 800 years. It was a wonderful Christmas season, with the best of Yule, the best of religion, and the best of family and friends. We are sorry to see it go. Happy New Year to all Wilmette vistors, and God Bless. I wish all a wonderful year.
