blessed epiphany

Epiphany is the climax of the Advent/Christmas Season and the Twelve Days of Christmas, from December 25th until January 6th. 
For many traditions, the season of Epiphany extends from January 6th until Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent leading to Easter.
The term epiphany means "to show", "to reveal", or to "make known". 
We remember the coming of the wise men bringing gifts to visit the Christ child, who by doing so "reveal" Jesus to the world as King and Lord of all.
