Another Epiphany
On Christmas Day and on January 6, we have experienced the manifestation (= epiphany) of Jesus to the shepherds and to the Magi who had gone to him. They recognized him and adored him, kneeling in front of him and bringing presents.
I think that the shepherds brought “white gifts” like milk, cheese, wool and maybe a lamb, to give honor to the white Splendor of God. Were these poor gifts?
