      V11 visitation of the Maggie

      [First when "they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they
      bowed down and worshiped him."
      Second "Then they opened their treasures and presented to him
      gifts, gold, and myrrh, and frankincense. ". ]

      In those times only kings were presented with incense and myrrh. The
      Maggie believed that the baby born was a King and Messiah, that they
      were expecting. One can visit a King only with presents.
      This should be model for believers. God do not expect any submission
      without self-submitting to the Lord. It was eastern tradition that
      one could visit the King only with presents. (Exodus 43:11, Samuel
      10:27, 1 Kings 10:2). At that time Kings used the God. This
      His Kingship. Frankincense was used in the prayers. The Fathers have
      multiform symbolic meanings in the three gifts; this signifies He is
      God. . Myrrh was used to apply on dead body. This signifies His
      humanity and suffering. It is said that they saw the dream in which
      Herod seen as one with his sword raised up to strike. It is also
      said that St. Thomas met theses Maggies in Persia when he was
      preaching gospel and he baptized them. Further they helped the saint
      in spread the gospel.
