The story of the journey of the Magi ends by saying that the kings “departed for their country by another way.” Their encounter with Jesus changed their lives, and they saw Herod for what he really was. Encountering Jesus is a life-changing experience! We encounter Jesus most especially in the Holy Eucharist. We encounter him in Sacred Scripture. We even encounter him in the face of another person. Our faith is passed on by people who have encountered Jesus and can’t help but share the story of their life changing experience of God’s love and mercy.

Today’s Question: What does Jesus mean to you?

Lord, open my eyes to the opportunity I have to share my faith story.
