Celebrating Epiphany

For the Epiphany, Family Faith youth wrote an equation to put on the door of their houses. For this year, the equation would be written as “20 + C + M + B + 19.” The equation holds two meanings. The C, M, and B, refer to the traditional names of the Magi: Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar. The letters also stand for the Latin phrase “Christus mansionem benedicat” which means “May Christ bless the house.” The plus signs represent the cross, and the 20 and 19 simply refer to the year.
