Christmas. Twelfth day.

Men came. Foreigners from far off in the East.
Persia, perhaps? Home of the invaders, conquerors over centuries.
What language did they speak? Was Mary frightened
to see these strangers coming to her home?
But look:
"Their joy knew no bounds!Entering the house where the baby and Mary, his mother, were,
they threw themselves down before him, worshiping. Then
they opened their presents and gave him gold, frankincense, and myrrh."
This was surely acts of kindness, banishing fear.

Mary knew her baby was the son of God. 
As those men also realized who Jesus was
may we too have our own epiphany of who He IS.
