Feast of the Epiphany

- French (anonymous), ca. 1380 - 1390

"Our home country is the paradise from which we have fallen. We are forbidden to return to it. When we come to know Jesus, we can return along the way by which he returned . . . So let us, like the magi, return to our home country by another way than the way we left it." - Gregory the Great (ACCS, Matthew 1a, 1-13, p. 30)
