Jesus calls his Apostles to serve mankind.

"As he passed by the Sea of Galilee,

Then they abandoned their nets and followed him."

The Epiphany of the Lord - Saturday, January 6th: Class Discussion

"They were overjoyed at seeing the star,
and on entering the house
they saw the child with Mary his mother.
They prostrated themselves
and did him homage.
Then they opened their treasures
and offered him gifts of
gold, frankincense, and myrrh."

- Gospel Reading

Epiphany means manifestation.
What the Church celebrates - God made man.
He joins the human race to relate to us all.
