20 C+M+B 09

Today is Epiphany, also called Theophany and the Adoration of the Magi. Traditionally it is today we celebrate the extension of grace through Christ to the gentiles represented by the three Persian Magi that traveled great distance to honor the Son of Man. Of course being the holiday of the Magi, this all has special meaning for those of us that are sorcerously inclined.

For instance it is the traditional day to bless your house by consecrating chalk and writing the year and the initials C+M+B above the door. Of course the CMB stand for Caspar Melchior and Balthazar but also has the meaning of "Christus Mansionem Benedictat" (Christ bless this home).

It is normally done in this pattern: 20 C+M+B 09

Take today and reflect upon the inner Star and pray that it leads you to the Logos.
