"A religion born of dreams: the angel Gabriel who appeared to Mary, the dream of the wise men in which they are warned to return home by another route, the dream of Joseph, as soon as they depart.
"The dream of every human heart to love and be loved; not to die alone.
'The star was seen by everyone but not everyone understood its meaning,' notes Cromatius of Aquileia.
"The Epiphany. The star that sheds just enough light so that we can take one more step, and then we must look to the star again.
"So like our lives that we, too, live in exile and fear, but also in hope.
