It’s Movie Time!

Here's what we're watching, but just because it's here, doesn't always mean it was good!

Pray for the canonization of JPII

God our Father, you reward all who believe in you. May your servant, John Paul our Pope, vicar of Peter and Shepherd of your Church, who faithfully administered the mysteries of your forgiveness and love on earth, rejoice with you for ever in heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen!

20 + K + M + B + 12

It’s time for the Epiphany House Blessing. Look for blessed chalk at your Church this weekend!

Using blessed chalk, the head of the household says the following prayer while inscribing 20 + K + M + B + 12 outside, above, or near, the main door of the house:

 

The 3 wise men

K

Kaspar

M

Melchior

May Christ bless our home

and remain with us throughout this new year.

If others are present:

Almighty God, incline your ear.
May you bless us and all who are gathered here.
Send your holy angel who will defend us
and fill with grace all who live here. Amen.

You may also write ‘ora pro nobis’ (pray for us) underneath with a small crown above each of the three letters to represent the magi.
