The star of smallness and simplicity

“When they saw the star, they were filled with immense joy. They went into the house, saw the child with Mary his mother, and fell on their knees and worshipped him; then they opened their coffers and offered gifts: gold, frankincense and myrrh” (Matthew 2, 1-12).


The Magi set out on their journey because God has previously set out to meet them. And, in them, also towards our encounter: “We have seen his star go forth”.

Today God allows himself to be found by the unknown, by those who are not on the list of those who are invited, nor on the registers of those who have all the rights.

They meet him with Mary, his mother, and prostrate themselves before him on their knees.

The Child’s littleness does not prevent them from seeing God in him.

On the contrary, this simplicity and littleness is the transparency of God Himself.

May the Three Wise Men find you today and always being small so that they can give you lots of good things.
