Today is Epiphany or Theophany, also known as Three Kings' Day. Epiphany is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God the Son as human in Jesus Christ.
Epiphany is celebrated by both
the Eastern and Western Churches, but a major difference between them
is precisely which events the feast commemorates. For Western
Christians, the feast primarily commemorates the coming of the Magi,
with only a minor reference to the baptism of Jesus and the miracle at
the Wedding at Cana. Eastern churches
celebrate the Baptism of Christ in the Jordan. In both traditions, the
essence of the feast is the same: the manifestation of Christ to the
world (whether as an infant or in the Jordan), and the Mystery of the
Incarnation. The miracle at the Wedding at Cana is also celebrated
during Epiphany as a first manifestation of Christ's public life.
