Pope urges faithful to spread the faith in Jesus, the 'light of the world'

2013-01-07

He described the faith the Three Wise Men had in Jesus as the reason for celebration on the Feast of the Epiphany.

BENEDICT XVI
“The Magi represent the people – we can even say the civilizations, the cultures, the religions – that are, so to speak, on the path to God, in search of his reign of peace, of justice, of truth, and of liberty.”

Like the Magi, the Three Wise Men, the Pope encouraged all the people to search for and show their faith in Jesus, but more importantly, to help spread that faith throughout the world.

BENEDICT XVI
“The light of Christ is so clear and strong that it makes the language of the cosmos and of the Scriptures intelligible, so that all those who, like the Magi, are open to the truth can recognize it and join in contemplating the Saviour of the world.”

During his speech the Pope also extended his well wishes to members of the Orthodox Churches, who celebrate Christmas during the Epiphany, since they follow the Julian calendar.
