For it was foretold that when such a star appeared in the east, then would God's appointed Messiah be born in Bethlehem of Judea. pie whom God had so singularly blessed. But, to our amazement, there was naught but bitterness, apprehension and suspicion. Herod received us with cold civility, and his courtiers re Naturally I mad. immediate Se " ted ° U1 ' prcsence ' We were questioned closely by preparation to travel there, for so great an event must not be missed. I would greet the newborn king and pay homage to my God. Long was the journey over desert and mountain. And though I had the good company of two others like myself, Magi from far countries, even so 1 would have abandoned the hardships of my pilgrimage had it not been for the constantly beckoning star, growing brighter each night and urging us onward toward the Holy Child. At long last my companions and I reached the court of the Judean King Herod. How great was our disappointment! For we )ad expected to find feasting and rejoicing among these peo- the monarch, and when at last he permitted us to continue our journey he insisted that we inform him immediately when we had found the child. His mouth spoke of worship, but his eyes implied murder! Guided by the star, we came at last to a stable in Bethlehem. Could this he the birthplace of a king? Would the world offer no better welcome than this for God's Son? Surely we had misread the heavenly message: Our pilgrimage had been in vain. Buf as we stood thus counseling in the stable yard, there came faintly to our ears the lovely sound of a woman, singing. The melody was sweet as a lullaby, but the words, were a paean of praise, magnifying God. The song drew us to the open stable door. We looked in. The light of our guiding star focused its glory on the scene before us. In breath less awe we beheld the little child lying in a manger and, watching over Him, the blessed mother by whose sweet humility God's greatest gift had come. Our search was ended. We had found our Lord! Light of light, Very God of Very God! No one of us dared speak a word. The Word had been spoken by God. Silently we knelt and worshiped the Holy Babe. Our gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh were placed before Him. Then quietly, so as not to wake the child, we left. Now we are homeward bound by a way that Herod can never trace. Tomorrow our paths diverge: Gaspard, the wise man from the Orient, goes east; fair-skinned Melchior to the north; I, Balthasar, to my own dark people of the south. How different we are in our ways and outward appearance. Yet how alike we are in our need for the love of Christ. We have seen the Light of the World in the face of a child. From henceforth no light but His shall be our guide. "Oh come, let us adore Him MUSK OX The soft underwool of the musk ox compares with cashmere and vicuna.
