Traditional Door Inscription Ceremony of the Feast of Epiphany

Gold and frankincense were blessed on the Feast of the Epiphany in the 15th/16th centuries. Blessing of chalk was first introduced in the 18th century. This beautiful tradition is carried out in many countries, including Poland. The blessed chalk is used to inscribe the first letters of the names of the Magi and the current year on the front door of Catholic homes. Following Mass, a small piece of blessed chalk may be taken home and the following is said with family and friends gathered at the front door:

K+M+B 2021 (or C+M+B 2021)

Leader: And the Word was made Flesh.

All: And dwelt among us.

Leader: May Christ dwell in our midst.

All: Amen.

Christmas carols may be sung to conclude the ceremony
