We don’t know what happened to the Magi after they left the infant Jesus, but their journey certainly didn’t end there. Encountering Jesus was for them a major turning point in their lives. I like to think that this was their Cursillo weekend. They didn’t know what to expect or what they would find, but their lives were changed forever.
The same is true for us. My journey didn’t end on my Cursillo weekend when I truly found Christ. That weekend only set me on the path I needed to follow. What is important for me is my “fourth day”, and I would guess it was the same for the Magi. The Magi still had many miles to travel and many more deserts to cross, but so do I !
A relationship with Jesus is so rich and so full that it takes a lifetime to discover all of its meaning and beauty. To think I could discover all that on a three-day weekend is ridiculous. To think I could appreciate everything about my faith in less than a lifetime is crazy. Thus I have to ponder my life in grace to appreciate it, and so did the Magi, no matter how many deserts I still have to cross !
