Llandaff Cathedral is a Christian gathering of the Church in Wales, which is a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. It is also the seat of the Bishop of Llandaff. The Cathedral is a focus of pilgrimage and spirituality in the Diocese of Llandaff and for the City of Cardiff. Our purpose is therefore to worship God and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. In so doing, we welcome all who come here, irrespective of gender, race, creed or sexuality, in order that we might share and pass on our rich Christian heritage and the joy of Christian faith.
Thought for the Week
Epiphany is a short season in the church’s year, spanning a few weeks between the celebrations of Christmas and the preparations of Lent. But it packs a lot in to a handful of Sundays, by highlighting several important events in the life of Jesus – the visit of the Magi (or Wise Men) to the baby Jesus, his adult baptism, and his presentation in the temple as a young child. Our English word ‘epiphany’ is taken from the Greek ‘epiphainein’, which means ‘reveal’. Jesus was revealed to the Magi at the end of a long journey following a star; he was revealed to Simeon and Anna after many years waiting in the temple; and he was revealed to followers of John the Baptist in the waters of the Jordan. Different ways, different people, different times, different purposes, but all revealing something of who Jesus is.
