EPIPHANY BLESSING: The Solemnity of the Epiphany is celebrated on Sunday January 6, 2019. On the feast of the Epiphany, or Little Christmas, it is a tradition to ask God to bless our homes. This tradition includes using chalk to trace four crosses, the initials of the three kings (Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar) and the numerals of the current year over the doorway. It will look like this [20 + C + M + B + 18]. A similar tradition is to take the first Christmas card with the three kings that you receive and put it over the doorway to your house.  Some say that if you do that you will never run out of money in the New Year. No guarantees!
