“It is a pleasure to return to St. Veronica Parish to celebrate the beautiful feast of the Epiphany. I take this moment to greet and thank Fr. Stephen and Deacon Harris for their devoted service to your parish and to your pastoral needs. Let me also thank all of you, the parish community of St. Veronica, for being ‘a light brightly visible’ in the Cherry Hill, Brooklyn, and West Port communities. Thank you for living your faith and for your spirit of charity and outreach.
“It might even be said that today’s feast of the Epiphany is all about our being ‘a light brightly visible’ to the surrounding community, as with the wise men of old, we see by faith the star that hovered over the stable where the Christ, the Savior of the World, was born. Let us spend a few moments, I.) thinking about this light, II.) about the response of the wise men who followed the star, III.) and about our response to the One who is ‘the light of the world.'”
