The Feast of the Epiphany 2017

We keep a holy day adorned with three miracles: today a star led the Magi to the manger; today, wine was made from water at the marriage; today, Christ willed to be baptized by John in Jordan, that He might save us, alleluia. (Antiphon of the Magnificat at Second Vespers)

Aña Tribus miráculis ornatum diem sanctum cólimus: hodie stella Magos duxit ad praesepium: hodie vinum ex aqua factum est ad nuptias: hodie in Jordáne a Joanne Christus baptizári vóluit, ut salváret nos, allelúja.
