Adoration of the Magi

"To greet His birth the Wise Men went,

led by the star before them sent;

called on by light, towards Light they pressed,

and by their gifts their God confessed."

- from the Vespers office hymn of the Epiphany, which is 6 January (or this weekend in some places!)

 

A lovely mosaic altar frontal in the Lady chapel of the Portuguese mission church in London, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception.
