Epiphany of the Lord, Three Kings Day, January 3, 2021

House blessing on the Feast of the Epiphany
We invite you to adopt this custom in your family. The family gathers to ask God’s blessing on their home and on those who live in or visit the home. It is an invitation for Jesus to be a daily guest in our home, our comings and goings, our conversations, our work and play, our joys and sorrows.
A traditional way of doing this is to use chalk to write above the home’s entrance, C + M + B + (current year). The letters C, M, B have two meanings. They are the initials of the traditional names of the three magi: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. They are also an abbreviation of the Latin words Christus mansionem benedicat, “May Christ bless this house.” The “+” signs represent the cross and the phrase ends with the current year.

Instructions for Blessing the Home
Using the blessed chalk, mark the lintel of your front door (or front porch step) as follows:
C + M + B + 2021 while saying:
The three Wise Men, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar followed the star of God’s Son who became human two thousand and twenty one years ago. May Christ bless our home and remain with us throughout the New Year. Amen.

Then offer the following prayer: Visit, O blessed Lord, this home with the gladness of your presence. Bless all who live or visit here with the gift of your love; and grant that we may manifest your love to each other and to all whose lives we touch. May we grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you; guide, comfort, and strengthen us in peace, O Jesus Christ, now and forever. Amen

“Chalking the door” is a way to celebrate and literally mark the occasion of the Epiphany and God’s blessing of our lives and home. With time the chalk will fade. As it does, we let the meaning of the symbols written sink into the depths of our heart and are manifest in our words and actions the Latin words, Christus mansionem benedictat, “May Christ bless this house.”
