Christ came to redeem for all times and seasons. Only my flagging, drowsy devotion relegates his influence to an annual holiday. But every day, I get to try it again. I try to awake to the truth that every day is as sacred as the next, and that God’s invitation to salvation, holiness, and hope shimmers just as brightly as the magis’ star if I manage to open my eyes and wake up.
