On the feast of the Epiphany, when we reflect on the gifts given to the Baby Jesus by the Magi, it is fitting also to reflect upon our own gifts. We have all been given gifts beyond measure by God, who is the giver of all good things.
Each of us have been given the gift of our Faith, which if responded to properly, will lead us through Jesus Christ to the rewards of heaven. Our very life is a gift. All the material and spiritual gifts we possess; from whom have we received them? Have we been grateful for them? How have we used them? How have we shared them?
As the new year begins it is customary to make plans and resolutions. First among them should be how we will acknowledge, use and share the gifts we have received from God.
I would like to suggest some ways in the parish that you might offer your time treasure and talent to the child Jesus.
Things to which you might offer your time, talent and treasure.
