revelations. The narration of the visit of the magi in the Gospel (Mt 2: 1-12), describes three different way to respond to the voice of God. The first attitude is represented by king Herod, who heard about the birth of Jesus, wanted to eliminate Him. We may also try to eliminate God from our lives, because He may constrain and correct our current way of life.

The second attitude towards God’s revelation is represented by the priests and scribes who ignored Jesus. In this modern world many ignore religion or certain indifference with regard to the religious life is increasing.

The third attitude is represented by the magi who adored Jesus and contemplated mystery of incarnation. I hope one of our resolutions for this new year is to spend some time everyday to adore and contemplate the mystery of our faith.

God speaks to us everyday in our life through our conscious, parents, friends, especially in the Word of God and in the Holy Mass celebration. It is up to each one of us to decide how to react to God’s inspirations and
