Learn Wisdom from the Wisemen

The visit of the wise men is so familiar that we might breeze by it figuring we already know it well enough. Or we become sidetracked with unanswerable questions: How many wise men were there? Where did they come from? How did they know what the star meant? What exactly was the star? Today we revisit this familiar account. As we do so, we are not going to speculate on those unanswerable questions. What we are going to do is see how much wisdom we can still gain as we contemplate these familiar events and apply them to our lives, putting them into practice. May God open our hearts and minds that we may learn wisdom from the wise men.
