Father Philip Writes...
At the beginning of January the Church keeps the Feast of the Epiphany.
"Epiphany" means “manifestation” or “showing forth”.
God loves all and nobody is his favourite. There is nothing worse than ‘I’m saved’ (‘…and you are not!’) Fr Faber wrote:
That does not mean ‘anything goes’ but it means our attitude should change. St Mary’s is a welcoming church, but I hope we can make it even more welcoming for all; God is manifested in us in his Royal Birth and we must do the same for others.
