The Christmas season ends today with Epiphany. “Epiphany” means “appearing,” and the celebration of Epiphany centers upon the appearing of the Gospel to the Gentiles, which was first marked with the appearance of the magi to worship the infant Jesus.

Because death made its entrance through a woman, it was fitting that life return through a woman. The one, seduced by the devil through the serpent, brought a man the taste of death. The other, instructed by God through the angel, produced for the world the Author of salvation.

The Venerable Bede, d. 735
