Don’t Be Afraid to Take Risks


"If we want to find Jesus, we have to overcome our fear of taking risks, our self-satisfaction and our indolent refusal to to ask anything more of life," Pope Francis said during a Mass celebrating the Feast of the Epiphany. "We need to take risks simply to meet a Child." He went on to say we can look to the Magi for inspiration. The Magi were not content with "just getting by, with keeping afloat." Instead, they looked up and followed the path to Jesus.

Friar Don Halpin OFM Conv. takes us on the journey of the Magi as they followed the star to Bethlehem.
