Presiding Bishop in Puerto Rico exchanges messages of hope as struggles persist after hurricane
Bishop Rafael Morales leaves no impression he is still wading into his job. He had led the Diocese of Puerto Rico a mere two months when Hurricane Maria devastated the island in September, and since then he, his staff and clergy around the diocese have mobilized relief efforts with a determination that this week earned praise from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry during his two-day visit.

Distinctive Traditions of Epiphany
by Amber and John Inscore Essick
The epiphany feast completes the season of Christmas by inviting us to discern the identity of the Christ child. Three traditions—baking a kings’ cake, marking a door lintel with the magi’s blessing, and elaborating worship with lighted candles—help us interpret the Christmas season appropriately.
To celebrate the feast of Epiphany is to continue down the liturgical path that originates in the anticipatory weeks of Advent. The feast completes the season of Christmas by inviting us to discern the identity of the Christ child. Like the Magi who anticipated, recognized, and welcomed the infant king, congregations and families can recognize and proclaim the appearance of God’s chosen one. Thus, Epiphany is the culmination of the Christmas season, not its ending. Recovering three historical Epiphany traditions—baking a Kings’ Cake, marking a door lintel with the Magi’s blessing, and elaborating worship with lighted candles—can help God’s people interpret the Christmas season appropriately.
