January 2 - St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzen
When Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, in the days of King Herod, behold, magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, "Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage" (Matthew 2: 1-2).
The magi had to travel great distances to meet Jesus. For us, it is much easier. Jesus is in the tabernacle at our local parish.
Jesus, help me to believe that you are truly present in the Eucharist.
