First of all,
Christmas is Officially over 😦
But, now we await El Día de la Candelaria!!
Feast, Food, Family, Friends and El Niño Dios’ new Clothings by His Padrino’s!!
Today in many regions in México, the Children received their Christmas Gifts! There will be Presentations, Shows, Games, Festivities and Rosca de Reyes all over to prepare for El Día de la Candelaria!
Yes, in México El Niño Dios is not the one that comes bearing the Christmas gifts, it is the Santo Reyes!!
The Three Wise Men…
Or so we thought….
I have encountered this very, VERY interesting article on Season’s of Grace website by Kathy Schiffer.
Apparently Religious Studies Prof. Brent Landau, at the University of Oklahoma has translated some ancient documents from the Syriac language and though we traditionally assumed 3 Wise men, due to the 3 gifts, Gold, Myrrh, and Frankincense, “there were many more—perhaps scores of Magi who made the trip.”
But this Revelation does not stop there…no!
The BIGGEST News is in regards to the STAR of Bethlehem…
According to Professor Landau,[…] what the Magi saw was the Star itself. “It transformed into a small luminous human being,” he said, “who was Christ Himself in a pre-existent, celestial form.
“It is saying that Jesus Christ and the Star of Bethlehem are the same thing, and Jesus Christ can transform himself into anything.
“The star guides them to Bethlehem and into a cave where it transforms into a human infant who tells them to go back and be preachers of the Gospel.”
I am of the same mind as Kathy…I don’t know if I believe it, but it is EXCITING!!
Do drop by and read the entire article…SO Worth It!!
Feliz Día de Los Santos Reyes!!!
