The Epiphany

My post for 2007 is here, and last year's post is here. There is a ritual for an Epiphany blessing here.

I realize that the revelation of Christ must be noticed to be seen. I pray I'm one who will always recognize presence of Christ.

Collect of the Day:
O God, who by the leading of a star manifested your only Son to the peoples of the earth: Lead us, who know you now by faith, to your presence, where we may see your glory face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The picture at the top of the post is of Sandro Botticelli's 1475 painting Adoration of the Magi. The figures in the painting are identified here. The National Gallery of Art, WebMuseum and the Web Gallery each has information.
