Epiphanytide : Day 7

Star of wonder

Star of light

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading

Still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light.

The Magi were blessed. They were given the guidance of a star. In the darkness of this world we have all been given help on our journey to God; the beauty of nature, the Word of God in Sacred Scripture, the faith of others and our own faith.

Let’s reflect today on the stars that we have in our own lives. Who are the people who have guided you? Perhaps it’s a teacher that recognised your talents or an uncle who supported you in sport or a friend’s mum who fed you or a mentor or coach or spiritual director.

Can you be in touch with any of your ‘guides’ to thank them?

Who might you be a guide to in 2021?

Prayer

Almighty and everlasting God, creator of time and space of season and epoch, of birth and evolution of both living creatures and galaxies alike, hear us as we humbly come before you as we mark our brief passage of time as another year begins. We have heard the Christmas story, about how you came to live among us. As we try to understand what this means in our lives we pray that you will guide our life journeys.
