Follow Your Star
Epiphany of the Lord
Matthew 2:1-12

"We saw his star at its rising and come to do him homage" Mt. 2: 2, said the Magi to the cruel Herod who will take their word so as to kill the babies of Bethlehem after they leave back to their own countries. Mat: 2: 12.

They came to look for the King of the Jews Mat: 2: 2. The star have told them that their will be only one king for the Jews. A king that the Angel have told the Holy Mother, Mary, about him. "The Lord God will give him the throne of David his father, and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end" Luke 1: 32

They were sure that this baby is not like any other babies. They did not know all about the prophets of the People of God. That is why Herod had to assembled all the chief priests and the scribes of the people so as to inquire of them where the Christ was to be born. Mat. 2:4.
They did not know what is the Christ-Messiah. They came to look for the king whose kingdom will last for ever. The Star would not lie to them.
They knew nothing about Isaiah who have predicted speaking of the baby that they saw his star in orient: "For a child is born to us. A son is given; upon his shoulder dominion rests. They name him Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father-Forever, Prince of Peace. His dominion is vast and forever peaceful, from David's throne, and over his kingdom, which he confirms and sustains by judgment and justice, both now and forever." Isaiah 9: 5-6

They followed the star. But the star disappeared on their way looking for the real king. They wondered many times, they asked here and there many people. They then came to Herod, the king. Some traditions make form the magi kings, that is why kings can meet the Herod.
The star of the truth will never fail anybody. That is why: "behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them, until it came and stopped over the place where the child was." Mat: 2: 9.
You have a star that tells you the truth. An Angel guardian, your saint patrons, your conscience, some people like your parents or some friends and of course the Church. You may wonder some times looking for your star. It may take some times to find out what God wants you to do in your life or how to handle this or that situation. But is you are honest, sincere and perseverant you will overjoy at seeing the star again.
Follow your star with prayer, patience and perseverance, it will guide you to holiness, because Jesus have said I am the light. He is the light of every star.
