Scriptural Reflections: The Savior came as a lowly one among the lowly and the Magi were wealthy foreigners who paid attention to the signs of their times.
The Magi reflect "all those who in their lives have let their hearts be anesthetized," the pope said Jan. 6, the feast of the Epiphany.
Spiritual Reflections: If you think that hearing another part of the Christmas story as late as Jan. 8 is stretching it out too much, just imagine what those Magi felt.
Simply Spirit: Matthew's Gospel does not ascribe gender to the Wise Ones from the East -- and scholarship shows why women may have been among them.
