Imitating the Magi

“The Magi, divinely warned in a dream, return to their country by another road. They must avoid Herod.

In the spiritual sense, he whom God has led to the crib can certainly go back home, to his own country, to his house; but it will be by another road. That is to say, the motives, the attitudes, the manner of existing, the means used, can no longer be the same.

When one has gone to Bethlehem, a radical change takes place.” 

(Jesus: A Dialogue with the Savior by a Monk of the Eastern Church, pgs. 8-9)
