It is traditional to recall the coming of the Magi by the ‘chalking’ of houses, asking for God’s blessing for the coming year. Before the announcement of the 3rd National Lockdown I was planning to visit those who were happy for me to do so, but under present circumstances this is not possible to justify.
I will post a piece of chalk and a prayer card to those on the Electoral Roll after the blessing of chalk during the Epiphany Mass on Wednesday 6 January, to enable those who wish to do so write the blessing on their lintels. May God bless your homes and all who live in it!
