Happy Feast of the Epiphany!
Chalking the Door, is one of the Christian traditions used on Three Kings Day to bless one’s house, and classroom.
You mark the top of the door, or on the door:
20 C + M + B 21
The plus signs are really crosses
The letters stand for The Three Kings : Casper, Melchior, and Balthazar and it also stands for the Latin “Christus Manistorem Benedicat” “May Christ Bless this House”
Each class had a prayer service and the
teachers blessed their classroom doors with blessed chalk that was also given to the students from Father Gannon to bless their family homes.
