SOLEMNITY OF THE EPIPHANY OF THE LORD
Bless this threshold

Think of everything that goes on in your home. Whether you live in a studio or on an estate, home is where the action is. Meals eaten, laundry folded, conversations shared, faults confessed, injuries forgiven, promises made, dreams spoken out loud, victories celebrated, defeats laid to rest, births welcomed, wanderers embraced, sickness tended, disappointments endured, deaths grieved—these are the many elements by which the vitality of our homes is measured. Doesn’t a space this important deserve a New Year’s blessing? Celebrate a ritual for these rooms where love puts down its roots.

Today’s readings:Isaiah 60:1-6; Ephesians 3:2-3a, 5-6; Matthew 2:1-12 (20).

“Nations shall walk by your light, and kings by your shining radiance.”
