I don't know why I'm so drawn to celebrating this holy day. Perhaps it is because of the three Wisemen (Matt. 2:1-11) who finally made it to the point of their pilgrimage.

And what did they feel when they arrived to his cradle bed? What were there impressions? Why did they give him gifts of material possessions and not their very lives?

We are also asked the questions as pilgrims: do we bring things with us, or our very lives?

Salaam and shalom!

Buen camino!
