“But Jesus came and touched them, saying, ‘Get up and do not be afraid.’ And when they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus himself alone.” (Matthew 17:7-8) This is the last Sunday in the season of Epiphany and on it; we mark the great manifestation of Jesus’ glory – the Transfiguration.  It must [...]

Roads

“And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another road.” (Matthew 2:12)  I’m intrigued by the final verse of the story of the “wise men.”  We of course tend to focus on the dream which kept them from revealing Jesus’ location to the evil [...]

Homeless

“Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, ‘Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.’ Then Joseph got up, took the [...]
