At Mass today, on the feast of the Epiphany, the priest ended his sermon with a wonderful meditation by Howard Thurman, an American civil rights activist. As Christmas-tide draws to a close, it prompts us to consider our work as adopted sons and daughters of God.

“When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among people,
To make music in the heart.”
