What Does the Epiphany Mean?

Why do Catholic Christians celebrate the Epiphany? The Feast of the Epiphany commemorates the events recorded in Matthew 2, where the author mentions the arrival of magi from the East who came to see the newborn king. Following the star, they traversed a long stretch of land to arrive in Jerusalem. After consulting with King Herod, they determined that the king was to be found in the city of Bethlehem. In this episode we briefly discuss some of the major symbolic elements to the Epiphany.
