Home Chalk Blessing

A part of church history is the custom of blessing homes at the New Year. A family would hold a short service of prayer to ask God’s blessing on their dwelling and on all who live, work with and visit them.

Take chalk and mark above the entrance or on the doorstep of your front door as follows:
20 + C M B + 19

While doing the marking, someone says:
“The magi of old, known as
C: Caspar,
M: Melchior, and
B: Balthasar
followed the star of God’s Son who came to dwell among us
20: two thousand
19: and nineteen years ago.

+: May Christ bless our home
+: and remain with us throughout this coming year. “
