Happy Epiphany!

Most people are not aware that January 6th was the day that the early Church celebrated both the Baptism of Jesus and Christmas. This article by St Mary's Orthodox Syrian Church in Niranam, India provides a great explanation on how this feast day evolved over the ages, and today how many Western churches celebrate only the 3 wise men coming to give honor to the infant Jesus.
