Both Kings and Boys have arrived this week. The Magi came to the nativity (in my mum's nativity they are rather multicoloured spiffy people) and the boys came back to school.
I'm not sure which would have been the most disquieting. The Kings must have cut a dash as they appeared in the middle of nowhere bearing gifts. There must have been a sense of "what now" from our Lady. But they do bring with them the second revelation. First was the revelation of Christ in the flesh at the Nativity, then the Kings with the revelation to the Gentiles and then finally the revelation of the true identitiy or Christ at His baptism.
So the Kings come and they are essential. As essential as boys are to a school. Without them this is just a school building. With them it fulfuls the purpose for which it was designed.
So welcome my dear Kings and welcome my dear boys.
