Happy Feast of the Epiphany!

On Epiphany Sunday each year, our family has continued a tradition of reciting a blessing and marking the lintel of every doorway in our home (usually with chalk) indicating the year and the initials of the wise men (Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar): 20 C M B 17. (Photo below is from last year!) CMB also stands for Christus Mansionem Benedicat, Latin for “May Christ Bless this House.” To find out more information on this beautiful tradition, click here.
