"Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee." The words God addressed through the prophet's lips first to Israel are redirected at Epiphany. No longer is the 'you' God calls 'you' a race, or 'you' a nation, but you, just you, whoever, wherever, whatever you are. In the shining forth of the glory of God, the Old Covenant is transfigured into the New: no more the birthright of just one race or nation, but opened to the whole Creation. At Epiphany, the Church of the Jews, a Church of one people, gives birth to the Church we call "Catholic" - which means universal, complete, without exception, the Church that is given for all.
