Epiphany manifests God’s desire for the salvation of all, says Pope
January 07, 2015
The feast of the Epiphany reveals the truth that God desires to save all people, and not just one people, Pope Francis said in his January 6 Angelus address.
God’s love, he continued, is impassioned, faithful, and humble, seeking even those who seem farthest away from Him.
The journey of the Magi to Christ, the Pope added, recalls the journey of every Christian, who is called to walk toward Christ attentively and courageously, following the Word of God as a star.
After repeating his advice to all to carry a small book of the Gospels and read and meditate on it every day, the Pope offered Christmas wishes to Eastern Christians who were celebrating Christmas and asked the Blessed Virgin Mary to pray for the spread of Christ’s Gospel throughout the world.
