Eternal God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for the gift of the star that led the Magi across plains, mountains, and terrain to the very place where the Bright Morning Star, the child Jesus, was with his mother. Their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh mirror the actual gifts of our lives to him – grant us the strength to seek, discover, and offer ourselves afresh to him who has conquered the darkness with his light. In his name we pray, amen.
