Bringing gifts like the Magi

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany. which is when he showed himself to the world.  The magi (wise men) visited Jesus bringing gifts of gold, frankinscence and myrrh.  They had followed a star and come to see Jesus.

In children's liturgy the children talked about the gifts they could bring to Jesus. Their pictures and prayer offerings were placed by the crib at the end of mass.
