For centuries, this popular tradition of blessing homes is associated with today’s solemnity of the Epiphany. For this blessing ritual, you will need chalk and a small bottle of holy water. Begin by gathering family members and friends around the front door of your home.
Leader: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Let us pray. May Christ bless this home. Amen.
With chalk, sign the main door: 20 + C + M + B + 19
The numbers represent the new year and the letters represent the initials of the Magi: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. It may also be interpreted as the Latin phrase "Christus mansionem benedicat" which means "Christ bless this house."
Leader: A reading from the book of Deuteronomy.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength. These commandments I give you are to be in your hearts. Place them on the door-frames of your home and on your entry gate. The Word of the Lord.
Then move inside to sprinkle each room with holy water.
Bless this household through all the days to come, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.

The Epiphany of the Lord celebrates more than the familiar story of the magi who travel from the east bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the Christ child.
The word "epiphany" means a moment of understanding or insight. This story, found only in the Gospel of Matthew, gives us a theological insight into who Jesus is and why he was born.
Jesus is revealed to the magi, foreigners who have traveled a great distance to find and worship him, as the Lord of all nations. Jesus is the ultimate gift from God who comes with authority (gold) to heal and forgive (frankincense), and to conquer death once and for all (myrrh).
He is the ultimate sign of God's love, a love that knows no limits and includes everyone.
Available in the church and parish office!
The Little Blue Books are good through the Christmas season ending on January 13 with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.
Suggested donation of $2 each.
