A common theological interpretation, however, of the meaning of the gifts are as follows:
Gold is a gift fit for a King,
and Jesus is King!
Frankincense is a gift fit for God,
and Jesus is God!
Myrrh is a gift fit for a mortal man, as it is used in anointing the body for burial,
and Jesus is Man!
One way we celebrate the
Epiphany is by crowning a queen.
Our Queen keeps a very special statue of the Baby Jesus for a year.
A Mass is also offered for her intentions.
This year our queen is Sr. Grace.
May our year be filled with grace!
