    Washington D.C., Jan 6, 2019 / 01:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- While the hustle and bustle of Christmas ends for many people on Dec. 26, throughout Christian history Christmas lasts for twelve days – all the way until Jan. 6.

    This feast marking the end of Christmas is called “Epiphany.”

    In the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, Epiphany celebrates the revelation that Jesus was the Son of God. It focuses primarily on this revelation to the Three Wise Men, but also in his baptism in the Jordan and at the wedding at Cana.

    In the Eastern rites of the Catholic Church, Theophany – as Epiphany is known in the East – commemorates the manifestation of Jesus' divinity at his Baptism in the River Jordan.

    While the traditional date for the feast is Jan. 6, in the United States the celebration of Epiphany is moved to the next Sunday, overlapping with the rest of the Western Church’s celebration of the Baptism of Christ.

    However, the meaning of the feast goes deeper than just the bringing of presents or the end of Christmas, says Fr. Hezekias Carnazzo, a Melkite Catholic priest and founding executive director of the Virginia-based Institute of Catholic Culture.

    “You can't understand the Nativity without Theophany; or you can’t understand Nativity without Epiphany.” The revelation of Christ as the Son of God – both as an infant and at his baptism – illuminate the mysteries of the Christmas season, he said.

    “Our human nature is blinded because of sin and we’re unable to see as God sees,” he told CNA. “God reveals to us the revelation of what’s going on.”

    *Origins of Epiphany*

    While the Western celebration of Epiphany (which comes from Greek, meaning “revelation from above”), and the Eastern celebration of Theophany (meaning “revelation of God”), have developed their own traditions and liturgical significances, these feasts share more than the same day.

    “The Feast of Epiphany, or the Feast of Theophany, is a very, very early feast,” said Fr. Carnazzo. “It predates the celebration of Christmas on the 25th.”

    In the early Church, Christians, particularly those in the East, celebrated the advent of Christ on Jan. 6 by commemorating Nativity, Visitation of the Magi, Baptism of Christ and the Wedding of Cana all in one feast of the Epiphany. By the fourth century, both Christmas and Epiphany had been set as separate feasts in some dioceses. At the Council of Tours in 567, the Church set both Christmas day and Epiphany as feast days on the Dec. 25 and Jan. 6, respectively, and named the twelve days between the feasts as the Christmas season.

    Over time, the Western Church separated the remaining feasts into their own celebrations, leaving the celebration of the Epiphany to commemorate primarily the Visitation of the Magi to see the newborn Christ on Jan. 6. Meanwhile, the Eastern Churches' celebration of Theophany celebrates Christ’s baptism and is one of the holiest feast days of the liturgical calendar.

    *Roman Traditions*

    The celebration of the visitation of the Magi – whom the Bible describes as learned wise men from the East – has developed its own distinct traditions throughout the Roman Church.

    As part of the liturgy of the Epiphany, it is traditional to proclaim the date of Easter and other moveable feast days to the faithful – formally reminding the Church of the importance of Easter and the resurrection to both the liturgical year and to the faith.

    Other cultural traditions have also arisen around the feast. Dr. Matthew Bunson, EWTN Senior Contributor, told CNA about the “rich cultural traditions” in Spain, France, Ireland and elsewhere that form an integral part of the Christmas season for those cultures.

    In Italy, La Befana brings sweets and presents to children not on Christmas, but on Epiphany. Children in many parts of Latin America, the Philippines, Portugal, and Spain also receive their presents on “Three Kings Day.”

    Meanwhile, in Ireland, Catholics celebrate “Women's Christmas” – where women rest from housework and cleaning and celebrate together with a special meal. Epiphany in Poland is marked by taking chalk – along with gold, incense and amber – to be blessed at Mass. Back at home, families will inscribe the first part of the year, followed by the letters, “K+M+B+” and then the last numbers of the year on top of every door in the house.

    The letters, Bunson explained, stand for the names traditionally given to the wise men – Casper, Melchior and Balthazar – as well as for the Latin phrase “Christus mansionem benedicat,” or, “Christ, bless this house.”

    In nearly every part of the world, Catholics celebrate Epiphany with a Kings Cake: a sweet cake that sometimes contains an object like a figurine or a lone nut. In some locations lucky recipient of this prize either gets special treatment for the day, or they must then hold a party at the close of the traditional Epiphany season on Feb. 2.

    These celebrations, Bunson said, point to the family-centered nature of the feast day and of its original celebration with the Holy Family. The traditions also point to what is known – and what is still mysterious – about the Magi, who were the first gentiles to encounter Christ. While the Bible remains silent about the wise men’s actual names, as well as how many of them there were, we do know that they were clever, wealthy, and most importantly, brave.

    “They were willing to take the risk in order to go searching for the truth, in what they discerned was a monumental event,” he said, adding that the Magi can still be a powerful example.

    Lastly, Bunson pointed to the gifts the wise men brought – frankincense, myrrh and gold – as gifts that point not only to Christ’s divinity and his revelation to the Magi as the King of Kings, but also to his crucifixion. In giving herbs traditionally used for burial, these gifts, he said, bring a theological “shadow, a sense of anticipation of what is to come.”

    *Revelation of God*

    Fr. Hezekias Carnazzo explained to CNA the significance of the feast of the Theophany – and of Christ’s Baptism more broadly – within the Eastern Catholic churches.

    “In our Christian understanding in the East, we are looking at creation through the eyes of God, not so much through the eyes of Man,” Fr. Carnazzo said.  

    In the feast of the Baptism of the Lord, he continued, there is special divine significance.

    With this feast day, the pastor explained, “God has come to reclaim us for himself.” Because of original sin, he continued, humanity has inherited “a human nature which has been dislocated from its source of life.”

    Sin also effected parts of creation such as water have also been separated from their purpose and connection to God’s plan for life, Fr. Carrazzo said, because its original purpose is not just to sustain our bodies, but our souls as well.  

    “With the fall, however, it has been dislocated from its source of life, it is under the dominion of death- it doesn’t have eternal life anymore. So God comes to take it to himself.”

    “What Jesus did was to take our human nature and do with it what we could not do – which is, to walk it out of death, and that’s exactly what He did with His baptism.” As it is so linked to the destruction of death and reclaiming of life, the Feast of Theophany is also very closely linked to the Crucifixion – an attribute that is reflected in Eastern iconography of both events as well.

    The feast of the Theophany celebrates not only Christ’s conquering of sin through baptism, but also God’s revelation of Christ as his Son and the beginning of Christ’s ministry. “The baptism of the Lord, just like the Nativity, is not just a historical event: it’s a revelation,” Fr. Carrazzo said.

    To mark the day, Eastern Catholics begin celebrations with Divine Liturgy at the Church, which includes a blessing of the waters in the baptistry. After the water is blessed, the faithful drink the water, and bring bottles of water to bring back to their homes for use and not only physical but spiritual healing, he explained. Many parishes hold feasts after Liturgy is over. In many Middle Eastern cultures, people also fry and eat awamat – dough that is fried until it floats, and then is covered in honey.

    During the Theophany season, priests also try to visit each home in the parish to bless the house with Holy Water that was blessed at Theophany. Fr. Carrazzo invited all Roman Catholics to come and become familiar, “to be part of a family” and join in celebrating Eastern Catholic traditions.

    Dublin, Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automated Feeding Systems Market by Livestock (Ruminants, Swine, Poultry), Function (Controlling, Mixing, Filling and Screening), Offering, Technology, Integration, Type and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Row) - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to *'s* offering.The automated feeding systems market is estimated to account for nearly USD 5.1 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.6%, to reach nearly USD 7.4 billion by 2023.The market is driven by the increasing preference of farm owners to automate processes for reducing operating costs and losses associated with manual feeding techniques. However, the major challenge faced by stakeholders is the lack of standardization of feeding equipment and feeding lines. In addition, high capital requirement at the initial stage of installation may discourage small and medium-sized farms from automating the feeding process.

    On the basis of type, the automated feeding systems market is segmented into rail-guided, conveyor, and self-propelled feeding systems. The rail guided feeding systems segment is estimated to account for the largest share in 2018. These systems have gained popularity among farms, due to their durability and low maintenance cost. Currently, rail-guided feed wagons are witnessing a significant demand in the market, as it is possible to save time and achieve greater flexibility by using these systems, compared to conventional feed mixer wagons.

    Based on livestock, the ruminants segment is projected to record the fastest growth in the automated feeding systems market between 2018 and 2023. Ruminants are a source of milk and meat, and the quality of these products depends on the quality of the feed as well as the efficiency and preciseness of the feeding process.*Key Topics Covered:**1 Introduction*

    IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ERC-USA and the University of California, Irvine have initiated treatment with the company’s investigational compound ERC1671, also known in Europe as Gliovac, which is in Phase 2 clinical trials in the United States, in a patient with aggressive brain cancer who did not qualify for the ongoing trial.  This patient will be treated under the Right to Try Law of 2017, which allows patients to undergo treatment with an experimental compound who may not qualify to participate in a registered clinical trial.  The law dictates that the compound must have successfully completed basic safety testing and be under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s ongoing approval process.“We are gratified to have the opportunity to offer options for this aggressive cancer, as current treatment modalities have proven unsuccessful,” said Daniela Bota, M.D., Ph.D., medical director, UCI Health Comprehensive Brain Tumor Program and associate professor of neurology, University of California, Irvine School of Medicine.  “The Right to Try laws may be the only alternative for many patients who may not qualify for clinical trials based on a variety of factors, including progression of disease, comorbidities, existing medications, physical limitations and others.”

    ERC1671, also known as Gliovac in Europe, is an investigational cell-based vaccine currently in is currently in randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trials in the United States as part of combination treatment for glioblastoma multiforme and gliosarcoma.  Interim data have demonstrated it as a promising treatment for those who have exhausted other therapies. 

    The patient was diagnosed with recurrent glioblastoma (GBM), the most aggressive form of brain cancer, but did not qualify for enrollment in the ongoing trial of experimental therapeutic vaccine ERC1671.  As a result, the patient requested under the Right to Try laws enacted in California in 2017 to receive treatment with the vaccine.  Treatment with ERC1671 was initiated in late November 2018.

    “We appreciated the opportunity to provide an option for a patient with such advanced disease under California’s Right to Try act, which we believe is an important step forward in ensuring that all patients who may want to use this option would have access to medications that may prolong or improve their lives,” commented Apostolos Stathopoulos, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of ERC Belgium, parent company to ERC-USA. 

    *About ERC1671*
    The ERC1671 (Gliovac™) vaccine is an advanced immunotherapy based on freshly extracted tumor cells and lysates that stimulates the patient’s immune system to recognize and reject cancer cells.  The vaccine contains a combination of autologous tumor cells, and allogeneic tumor cells, generated from the glioma tumor tissues of three different donor cancer patients, and the lysates of all of these cells. Upon injection, this mixture stimulates the patient’s immune system to mount an immune response against the tumor cells, which may lead to their destruction. 

    Gliovac/ERC1671 is for patients suffering from a grade IV glioma (glioblastoma multiforme and gliosarcoma) when all other traditional treatments have failed.  Further studies will target patients with newly diagnosed glioma with predictive marker indicating, unresponsiveness to Temozolomide chemotherapy (MGMT gene promoter unmethylation).

    ERC1671 is currently in randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2 clinical trials in the United States as part of combination treatment for glioblastoma multiforme and gliosarcoma.

    *About ERC-USA*

    The celebration at Candy's premises in Brugherio, led by Qingdao Haier Chairman, Haishan Liang, and Haier Europe CEO, Yannick Fierling, together with Beppe and Aldo Fumagalli, marks the importance of Candy's integration into Haier as Haier's operations platform for the European market and headquarters of Haier Europe.

    The aggregated volumes of Haier and Candy groups in 2018 represent a global market share of 15.1% on major appliances, 22.7% on freestanding refrigeration appliances and 19.8% in home laundry appliances (according to Euromonitor data). Combined revenue ranks fifth in Western Europe and aims to enter the top three by 2022.

    The acquisition perfectly fits into Haier's strategy to attain a leading position in all regions across the world.

    Yannick Fierling said, "Candy represents a major acquisition and is a terrific asset for the growth of our combined group, bringing great value to our employees, customers, business partners and shareholders. Europe is one of the key markets in Haier's global brand strategy and this combination will accelerate Haier's positioning in the region. I look forward to working closely with Candy's experienced management team as we share the commitment to innovate and to provide customized solutions to introduce the experience of the smart universe into our customers' lives."

    Haier will continue to invest in Europe to enhance its competitiveness in the region and worldwide. Candy's management team, employees, regional infrastructure, including R&D centers, business network and manufacturing facilities, as well as Candy's unique design and Italian style will be great foundations for our future growth globally. Beppe and Aldo Fumagalli will be non-executive Directors of Haier Europe.

    Beppe and Aldo Fumagalli concluded, "We are very excited for Candy to become an important asset of Haier's global network. Combining further investment from Haier with Candy's innovation capabilities and Italian design, technology and style, we are confident that the company will further grow to become the leader in smart home appliances with a high level of competitiveness.
