Epiphany comes from the Greek epiphaneia, meaning "manifestation" or "appearance".  In the context of the Church year, it refers to the appearance of Jesus Christ as the savior of the world-of Israel and of the Gentiles. This Christian feast day is celebrated during the early, dark, and cold winter months and serves as encouragement to the world to "arise and shine" for God's light has come (Isaiah 60: 1-6).
