"And behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them, until it came and stopped over the place where the child was.They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh."
- Mt 2:9-11
Another really cool tradition on Epiphany was the blessing of water at the Vigil. This was normally done by the bishop and was adopted from the Greek tradition. Also on Epiphany the priest traditionally blesses chalk that is used to inscribe the following blessing above the doors of homes:
20 + C + M + B + 15
