Vatican City, Jan 6, 2016 / 04:29 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In a restless age when humanity fails to find the answer to their continuous searching, the Magi who go out looking for Christ only to find him in a humble stable in Bethlehem are a key example of where to turn, Pope Francis has said.“Like the Magi, countless people, in our own day, have a restless heart which continues to seek without finding sure answers,” the Pope said in his Jan. 6 homily for the Feast of the Epiphany. “They too are looking for a star to show them the path to Bethlehem.”However, out of the many stars in the sky, the Magi “followed a new and different star, which for them shone all the more brightly.”After gazing at and reading the stars for centuries, the Magi had finally found the light they were looking for, Francis said, noting that the star “changed them. It made them leave their daily concerns behind and set out immediately on a journey.”“They listen...

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis said on Wednesday the experience of the Magi urges us not to settle for mediocrity and not to scrape a living but instead examine with passion the great mystery of life. He also said the Magi teach us to recognize the majesty in humility and learn how to knee in front of it. The Pope’s comments came during his Angelus address to the crowds gathered in St. Peter's Square on the feast of the Epiphany.Pope Francis said the gospel account of the Magi who came from afar to worship the Baby Jesus gives “an air of universality” to the feast of the Epiphany. He said “the Church has always seen in herself the image of all humanity” and through this feast wishes, as it were, “to guide, with respect, every man and woman of this world towards the Child Jesus who was born to save us all.”The Pope explained that both the Magi and the shepherds who came to pay homage to the Christ Child teach us that in order to meet Jesu...
(Vatican Radio) In his homily at Mass celebrating the solemnity of the Epiphany, Pope Francis said the Church is called to be a missionary Church and announcing Christ is not a profession and nor is it about proselytism. He said the Church cannot delude herself that she shines with her own light but instead draws her brightness from the light of Christ.   Please find below a translation in English of Pope Francis’ prepared remarks for his homily at the Mass in St Peter's Basilica celebrating the solemnity of the Epiphany:                 The words of the Prophet Isaiah – addressed to the Holy City of Jerusalem – are also meant for us.  They call us to go forth, to leave behind all that keeps us self-enclosed, to go out from ourselves and to recognize the splendour of the light which illumines our lives: “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of ...
