The Feast of the Epiphany of our Lord, this weekend: Saturday, January 7th: 4pm St. Thomas Aquinas, and 5:15pm St. Patrick’s; Sunday, January 8th: 9am and 4pm St. Patrick’s, and 11am St. Thomas Aquinas.
We will continue the tradition of the blessing of the home. A Holy Water bottle and chalk for the marking of your home will be available. An explanation of this tradition and a Blessing of the Home will be included. This is one way we can dedicate our homes to the Lord and ask the Lord to watch over and protect all who dwell and visit there.
Use the chalk to write above the home’s entrance:
20 + C + M + B + 23
The initials are the traditional names of the three magi: Caspar, Melchior
and Balthazar. The + sign represents the cross and 20…..23 is the year.
