6 JANUARY -- Epiphania Domini

Today is the traditional day of the Epiphany of the Lord. The 12 days of Christmas are over and we enter into Epiphany season in the traditional liturgy. This year there will be four and a half weeks of Epiphany season, ending on the 15th of February with Septuagesima Sunday.

You might like to visit The Byzantine Catholic Church of the Epiphany site, where you can find a history not only of the church but of the feast. It originally commemorated three events: the visit of the Magi, the Baptism in the Jordan, and the Wedding Feast at Cana.
