Three Magi (Wise Men or Kings)

Background: The Magi were a group of three Wise Men (Kings), who travelled from the East to find and worship the Baby Jesus at the time of his birth. They were guided by, “The Star of Bethlehem,” and were accompanied by Shepherds and Angels. They brought with them gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Their joy is celebrated in this Novena.
