The third season of the Christian calendar year is Epiphany which celebrates the revelation of God Incarnate as Jesus Christ.
This year, Epiphany began on January 6 and the season ends the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.
During Epiphany, we celebrate the coming of the Three Wise Men, the star, baptism of Christ and other events that manifest the divinity of Christ. February 24, the last Sunday after the Epiphany, is Transfiguration Sunday. We observe the moment when Jesus becomes radiant and appears with Old Testament prophets on a mountaintop before his disciples. Jesus is both human and divine – the bridge and connection between human nature and God.
The color of the season is white which symbolizes illumination.
