Our home now smells of incense–the incense of Epiphany.  Every room and every closet has been blessed.  And on the outside of every entrance to the house is the sign of the Wise Men–Gaspar, Melchior and Balthazar.

Our priest has prayed for our protection and used the very powerful water of Epiphany to bless our home.

This is another of the sacramentals that has been lost in the last 40 years.  Thanks to the priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, it is making a comeback. 

The blessing can be found here.
