Epiphany as Invasion
If we think of Epiphany at all, we may think of it as a passing season on the liturgical calendar. We may associate it with the Three Wise Men who followed the Star to find the baby King Jesus. We may even remember that Epiphany somehow adumbrates our Lord's Second Advent, and associate this with baroque paintings or Hallmark pictures of Jesus in the clouds. What most of us probably do not think of is how C.S. Lewis once described our Lord's Second Coming. "He will invade earth," he said. Think on that a few moments. And have a Blessed Epiphany.
