Blessing of our Front Door on
The Feast of Epiphany

Blessed are You, O lord our God,
for you guide our footsteps.
You bless our coming in and going out,
from birth to death, you hold us in your care.

Bless this door, O Lord,
which we consecrate to this time of preparation.
Each day we pass this place,
draw us more deeply into your presence
and the wonders of your love for us.

You are the door to the Kingdom of God,
the sheep gate to life eternal,
O portal of eternal peace, our new and living way,
lose our sins and open for us the door of salvation.

O God, protect our going out and our coming in;
let us share the hospitality of this home with all who visit us.
May the poor find rest within these walls
and all who hunger find refreshment in our home.

Lead us home through YOU, to YOU, and with YOU,
One God, forever and ever.  Amen.

With chalk write on the door frame:

   20 + C + B + M + 02

...the year 2002 and the initials of the traditional names
of the three astrologers or kings who came to the manger on Epiphany ... Caspar, Balthasar and Melchior.
