EPIPHANY BLESSING FOR CHALK TO BLESS YOUR HOME

Also used to bless washable crayons or markers used to Bless Your Home:

Chalk for each family is also blessed so that they may mark the names of the three Magi over their doors, as a witness of their faith and protection against evil. This blessing is from the older version of the Roman Ritual.

You can ask a priest to bless your chalk.

PRAYER:

“O Lord God, bless this Thy creature chalk that it may be used for the salvation of the human race. Through the invocation of Thy most Holy Name grant that whoever shall take of this chalk and write with it upon the doors of his house the names of Thy saints, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, may through their merits and intercession receive health of body and protection of soul. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.”

or this prayer may be said:

“Loving God, bless this chalk which you have created, that it may be helpful to your people; and grant that through the invocation of your most Holy Name all those who with it write the names of your saints, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar, may receive health of body and protection of soul for all who dwell in the homes where this chalk is used, we make this prayer through Jesus the Christ. Amen.”

The initials of the Magi are then inscribed upon the inside of the doors with the blessed chalk.

(The initials, C, M, B, can also be interpreted as the Latin phrase “Christus mansionem benedicat which means “Christ bless this house”.) This blessing is usually done at Epiphany around the first part of each new year, but can actually be done at any time to bless your home.

20 + C + M + B + 16  (the +  is the symbol for the sign of the cross) (the 20 and 16 signify the year as this blessing is redone each year. In January of 2016 you will write 20 + C + M + B + 16.

Write this inscription on your doors after blessing your home with holy water.

This is a very powerful blessing for your home.  You can write this on every door in your home or property.
