Bishop DeGrood’s homily from January 2, 2022. On the feast of the Epiphany of the Lord, Bishop DeGrood reflected on the stark contrasts between the magi, shepherds and King Herod. The magi and the shepherds found Jesus with humility and an open disposition to the truth of spiritual reality. On the other hand, King Herod was prideful and felt threatened by the thought of another king. He did not seek Jesus with humility, only power and authority. May we be like the magi and the shepherds, seeking Jesus with humility and an open disposition.
