Who Are Your Magi?

We all have those people who lead us to God by their lives. You know the ones. They are relentless in their quest for the One-who-uses-stars-to-guide. They reflect the very Light they are seeking. They are the ones who stop us in our tracks. These folks make us grateful beyond words. We are never quite the same because of them.

On this feast of Epiphany (the 12th day of Christmas), who are the magi or the shepherds in your life? Who are the ones who come into your life and bear gifts, reveal Light, and make you pause in gratitude and wonder? Tonight I listened to a man present about the sacraments at the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). I was invited by chance as I was in the building. I had met this man years ago and I knew there was something about him that was deep and compelling. Listening to him tonight, I thought, “you sir, are a Magi. You are a living sacrament.” He points to the Light. He is a sign of Love Incarnate.

As you think of these people, give thanks for each of their precious lives. What a blessing they are to this world!



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
