Ephiphany of the Lord

According to some, there were actually six kings who were supposed to visit Jesus on His birthday. However, one king got lost, went to the USA and built Burger King. The other went to China, and built Chowking, and one to the Philippines and built, guess what- Tapa King.

This was the attention step of the presiding priest today (the Indian priest) which got me smiling. It was fun, but the next parts of the sermon for today really passed through one ear to the other. It was so difficult to keep my eyes open, I tried closing and resting my eyes but I end up like a rooster with head down. 

I was at Church today and was unfortunate enough to have the Indian father to do the sermon for the mass. As usual, I didn’t understand much about what he was saying and was actually falling into sleep. Apart from incomprehensible muttering of words, the remaining were actually so ambiguous one would really have a difficult time fathoming why on Earth are we being told about things which are just so vague. For instance, the sermon today was about the visit of the three kings to Jesus in Judea. The priest kept telling about going out, searching out, finding out sort of things to find Jesus. I think, if one is not listening intently then the words would be fine, but truth of the matter is that, how can we do all these things the priest had mentioned without clear steps or giving examples at least. The last year, I have kept complaining about how vague sermons are in churches. I am getting desperate about this situation.
