The Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ is on Jan. 6. (In most countries and dioceses, the celebration is transferred to the Sunday between Jan. 2 and Jan. 8, inclusive). It is one of the oldest Christian feasts.
Epiphany comes from a Greek verb meaning “to reveal,” and all the various events celebrated by the Feast of the Epiphany are revelations of Christ to humanity. (Readings: Isaiah 60:1-6; Psalm 72:1-2, 7-8, 10-11, 12-13; Ephesians 3:2-3a, 5-6; and Matthew 2:1-12).
