Though the Twelfth Day of Christmas has passed, its season continues through the Baptism of the Lord. Yesterday focused on the magi journeying to find the newborn King. Each person journeys in every age. The magi were led on their journey by a star. Was it a star? More important, does it continue to shine for contemporary travelers? Jesuit Guy Consolmagno of the Vatican Observatory was asked about the Star of Bethlehem. He began his answer by reminding that the question “has hidden within it all sorts of wildly wrong assumptions.”
