“You guys can spend the night!” caused Magan’s phone to ping shortly after Thanksgiving. It was a note of excitement from my sister, whose family had just purchased a new home that included a finished basement where she hoped we could bunk during future visits to the metro-Atlanta area.

One morning last Advent, I was having breakfast in a restaurant and going over my To Do lists. At one point I remember looking up and noticing two women sitting at the table across from me. Eventually I caught on that their conversation was growing more intense and was moving into something that resembled a fight.

Every heart searches for meaning. Every soul longs for happiness. We are born restless. We are born with a void inside, a missing piece, which moves us to seek fulfillment. We are like a beautiful and complex jigsaw puzzle with one missing piece. Without that last piece we remain incomplete, so we tirelessly search for the piece that will complete the picture.

The visit of the Magi to the newborn Jesus is commemorated as the feast of the Epiphany. This places the emphasis on what was revealed to them at this, the culmination of their long journey “from the east” (Mt 2:1).


The Magi remain mysterious figures. There are many theories as to just who these pilgrims were. There is a consensus that they travelled a great distance from the east, compelled as they were to come and do homage to the “newborn king of the Jews” (Mt 2:2).

At the end of this new year, on December 14, 2018, I will have been a Catholic for 50 years. I still marvel at what transpired in that watershed year of 1968, when the world seemed to change as much as I did.

I once sang this Joni Mitchell song to my children at bedtime. I sing it now to my grandchildren who know it well because their mom also sings it to them. Their bedtime song about time has become in my life what its title describes, a circle game. The circle has extended to my daughter’s family and looped back from her own childhood to encircle the lives of her own children.

Read in English

Todo corazón humano busca el sentido de su vida. Toda alma anhela la felicidad. Todos nacemos inquietos. Nacemos con un vacío dentro, con un anhelo en el alma, que nos lleva a buscar la plenitud. Somos como un hermoso y complicado rompecabezas al cual le falta una pieza. Sin esa pieza estamos incompletos, por eso buscamos incansablemente la pieza que complete el rompecabezas de nuestra vida.
