Still following the star

For younger children a colouring page of the three kings (magi) following the star. 

And today's video of the familiar carol, we can follow the words.  Each verse we can think about the gifts brought for Jesus, they tell us something about his role as king, priest and saviour.  Gold for a king, Frankincense like the incense we use at mass reminds us of his priestly role, and Myrrh was used to anoint the dead, and was used to prepare Jesus' body after he had died on the cross (John 19:39).
