"Epiphany is both an event and a symbol. The event is described in detail by the Evangelist [St. Matthew]. The symbolic meaning, however, was gradually discovered as the Church reflected more and more on the event and celebrated it liturgically. After 2,000 years, wherever Epiphany is celebrated, the Ecclesial Community draws from this precious liturgical and spiritual tradition ever new points for reflection.” (Pope John Paul II, 6 January, 2000)
