It is a tradition performed each year on the Solemnity of the Epiphany, where family and friends gather to ask for Godโ€™s blessing on their homes and those who live in or visit the home, while marking โ€œ20+C+M+B+24โ€ on the front door of the house with blessed chalk. This is a time for prayer and an invitation for Jesus to be a daily guest in the home, our comings and goings, our conversations, our work and play, our joys and sorrows. Our home is where we find comfort and are most vulnerable. ๐—–๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ, ๐—Ÿ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ ๐—๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜‚๐˜€. ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ!
