Merry Christmonth!

So, if you’re sitting out there tonight thinking somehow you missed it, or it missed you, well fear not. Matthew 2:13-14 shows that Joseph and family left for Egypt in the middle of the night, probably within hours of the Magi’s leaving. And they stayed in Egypt for at least several months, probably years. But Joseph, Mary and Jesus were in Jerusalem 41 days after the birth of Jesus for His presentation and Mary’s purification, as described in Luke 2:21-39. So the Holy Family could not have left for Egypt within the first few days after the birth of Jesus. That tells us that the Magi were not present the night of the birth of Jesus. Nor did they see him in the first six weeks. So, if you feel you missed it, or perhaps it missed you, just like those Wise Men, there is still plenty of time to seek him.  Merry Christmonth!
