"Where is the newborn king of the Jews?
We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage."
~ Matthew 2:2

It's been a long time since I have studied Latin (1973-1975), however, with the help of a priest who also knows some Latin, it seems that July 24 was set aside as a day to honor the relics of Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar (nicknames for the Magi) being traslated/delivered to Cologne Cathedral in Germany in 1162/1164.
