St. Melchior (1st century)


Melchior was one of the three magi that visited the newborn Savior in Bethlehem. He was the first Gentile to see the Word made flesh.

I have been meaning to share the following on my blog, but seeing this picture of Melchior made me want to share it here.

As we set up our outdoor Nativity scene, during Advent, my 5 year old said, "Mommy, I know which one is Melchior. It's that one." I asked, "How did you know that?" She replied, "It's easy. It's how he got his name. He has a milky beard, so they called him Milkior."
