When I was a kid, we called the Epiphany, "little Christmas."  I wasn't Catholic back then.  Most of my friends were and I just copied them.  I had no idea what it meant.

This year, I thought more about it simply because of my own journey.  The Magi had a deep desire to find the Christ child.  As I get deeper into my own faith, that desire has grown for me, too.

"The Magi set out because of a deep desire which prompted them to leave everything and begin a journey.  It was as though they had always been waiting for that star." - Pope Benedict XVI

And it was like that for me too.
