Parish Groups Brothers and Sisters in Christ, The Christmas Season continues today with the celebration of the Epiphany of the Lord. Matthew's Gospel makes it clear that even from the very beginning Jesus came to save all people of the world. It was through the chosen people of Israel through whom and from whose history this revelation was to be known. Thus, we have magi representing all the known world at the time, making their way to Jesus' humble place of birth. We, too, as a Bible Study & Book Club universal Church and we here at St. Pius come from many cultural backgrounds, speak variFr. Paul Rossi x117 ous languages and enjoy certain traditions and customs special to our unique heritages; yet, [email protected] we are called to be one in Christ. Through the waters of Baptism and the gift of the Holy Grief Support Ministers Spirit we are called to be a People of God united as one in Jesus Christ. We are not to live in some form of forced uniformity; rather, we are called to live and celebrate our God-given [email protected] (650) 361-0655 diversity of gifts as one baptized people in Christ, the Lord. What a wonderful experience of Italian Catholic Federation the Holy Spirit bringing together people from diverse backgrounds and leading us into the Family of God. I hope the spirit of our Epiphany celebration today has a wonderfully long Jean Tomatis, [email protected] and lasting effect on our parish and that of the universal Church. May we see ourselves in (650) 368-5486 the Magi, seeking the Lord wherever he may be found.
