We know from the scriptures that as the Magi neared their personal meeting with the Lord, they lost sight of the star. As a result they had to seek help from King Herod. Like the Magi, I may lose the “star” at different times in my life as well. It might happen as I am making decisions about God or the direction of my life. Perhaps I rejected the “star” that guided my parents or teachers as I grew up and tried to find my own “star”.
We all know it’s hard when you are searching for the star in your life. It’s also hard for those who love you. I can take comfort from the fact that no matter where I am in my search for a relationship with the Lord, he is near to me in so many ways. I may feel far from him, but he is never far from me. He will never keep me at a distance from his love.
So as we begin a new year, we need to ask ourselves: where is the star in my life? Where do I find the basic direction or indicators of the path I want to take in life, the kind of person I want to become? How do I find my way to God? It is a question that led many of us, including myself, to Cursillo.
