Solemnity of the Epiphany. "The Lord and ruler is coming; kingship is his, and government and power." With these words the Church proclaims that today's feast brings to a perfect fulfillment all the purposes of Advent. Epiphany, therefore, marks the liturgical zenith of the Advent-Christmas season. — Pius Parsch
On coming to the house they saw the child with his mother Mary and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasure and presented him with gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11
