Can you believe there was a time when a GPS did not tell people how to get to where they needed to go? Some remember the time when we used paper maps, only to discover the most difficult task was to fold the map again after using it. For the magi we read about today, there were three things they did to help them, things that are also important for the spiritual life. They trusted in signs, they were willing to sacrifice, and they learned the importance of being generous.
Homily recorded at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, University City, Missouri on January 20, 2019.
