Ritual Notes

  • Epiphany is, liturgically, one of the three greatest feasts of the year. It is celebrated as a double of the first class with a privileged octave of the second order. Its colour is white as too its vigil (see attached).
  • The Blessing of Epiphany Waters after Compline on the Eve of the Epiphany or after the reading of the Ninth lesson at Matins, the priest clad in amice, alb, girdle, white stole and cope (if a bishop mitre too, removed for the orations). (See attached pdf.)
  • Matins of the Epiphany begin with a special form. The Invitatory is NOT said, nor Domine, labia mea aperires, nor Deus in adiutorium. After the silent Pater nosterAve Mariaand Creed, the Office begins at once with the first antiphon. This occurs only on the feast itself, NOT during the Octave.
  • In the Epiphany Mass (see attached) a genuflection is made at the words of the Gospel Procidentes adoraverunt eum. In the cathedral and principal church of each place, after the Gospel the movable feasts of the year are announced. If this is done, a white cope is worn by the priest or deacon who proclaims it. The lectern or pulpit may be used. See attached pdf.
  • The Blessing of Epiphany Chalk and of homes (see attached) may be performed at the end of the Epiphany Mass after the Last Gospel or on the Vigil after the Blessing of Epiphany Waters.

FEAST OF THE EPIPHANY

The Feast of the Epiphany is celebrated on January 6. This feast commemorates the manifestation of Christ, especially to the Magi, but also of the theophany of the Trinity at His baptism and of His divinity at the wedding feast at Cana.
Tradition tells us that the names of the magi were Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar. The men were astrologers from Persia who were looking for the star that would lead them to the promised Messiah. This was prophesied in the Book of Micah. According to the Gospel narratives, the wise men brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. These gifts were very meaningful. Gold was a precious and expensive gift, and showed how important Jesus was, representing his kingship. Frankincense is a sweet perfume which was often burned in the temple to worship God. It was a sign of Jesus’ divinity and that He should be worshipped. Myrrh was used to keep things fresh, and it was used by the women to anoint Jesus’ body when He died; bringing it as a gift, the wise men foretold His suffering and death.
Theophany is revelation of the Most Holy Trinity to the world through the Baptism of the Lord (Mt.3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22). God the Father spoke from Heaven about the Son, the Son was baptised by Saint John the Baptist, and the Holy Spirit descended upon the Son in the form of a dove. From ancient times this Feast was called the Day of Illumination and the Feast of Lights, since God is Light and has appeared to illumine “those who sat in darkness,” and “in the region of the shadow of death” (Mt.4:16), and to save the fallen race of mankind by grace.
The transformation of water into wine at the Marriage at Cana or Wedding at Cana is the first miracle attributed to Jesus in the Gospel of John [John 2:1-11]. In the Gospel account, Jesus, His mother and His disciples are invited to a wedding, and when the wine runs out, Jesus delivers a sign of His glory, proving His divinity by turning water into wine. It is considered to have symbolic importance as the first of the seven signs in the Gospel of John by which Jesus’ divine status is attested, and around which the gospel is structured. The miracle may also be interpreted as the anti-type of Moses’ first public miracle of changing water (the Nile river) into blood. This would establish a symbolic link between Moses as the first saviour of the Jews through their escape from Egypt and Jesus as the spiritual saviour of all people.

Epiphany Water

There is a special blessing for water on the feast of the Epiphany because of its connection to the celebration of Jesus’ baptism. This ancient rite of the blessing of the waters, with its extraordinarily powerful prayers of exorcism, renders Epiphany Water more spiritually potent than ‘ordinary’ holy water (also, exorcised salt is part of the ritual and is used to ‘make’ Epiphany water). The exorcisms are unique to the Epiphany water and make it a powerful sacramental against attacks of Satan so that “wherever this water and salt is sprinkled it may turn aside every attack of the unclean spirit”. The water is poured into the Holy Water tank and is used in the blessings of the homes during the Octave of the Epiphany.
The home is blessed on the Feast of the Epiphany or during the Octave by a priest or senior member of the household. The purpose of the blessing is to witness to the Faith and to beseech salvific benefits and protection from evil. Holy water is sprinkled throughout the home and, using blessed chalk, the lintel of each exterior-leading door is marked with the year and initials of the three kings, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar. The initials also form the first letters of the Latin prayer Christus mansionem benedicat [May God bless this house], and serve as a reminder of the date and purpose of the blessing.

Epiphany Chalk

Chalking the door is a Christian Epiphanytide tradition used in order to bless one’s home.

Either on Twelfth Night (January 5), the twelfth day of Christmastide and eve of the feast of the Epiphany, or on Epiphany Day (January 6) itself, many Christians chalk their doors with a pattern such as this, “20 † C † M † B † 19”, with the numbers referring to the calendar year (20 and 20, for instance, for this upcoming year, 2020); the crosses stand for Christ; and the letters have a two-fold significance: C, M and B are the initials for the traditional names of the Magi (Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar), but they are also an abbreviation of the Latin blessing Christus Mansionem Benedicat, which means, “May Christ bless this house.”
The chalk used to write the Epiphanytide pattern is blessed by a priest or minister on Epiphany Day; faithful then take the chalk home and use it to write the pattern. This custom of chalking the door has a biblical precedent as the Israelites in the Old Testament marked their doors in order to be saved from death; likewise, the Epiphanytide practice serves to protect Christian homes from evil spirits until the next Epiphany Day, at which time the custom is repeated. Families also perform this act because it represents the hospitality of the Holy Family to the Magi (and all Gentiles); it thus serves as a house blessing to invite the presence of God in one’s home.

Epiphany Customs

Epiphany Eve (also known as Twelfth Night) marks the end of the traditional Christmas celebrations and is the time when you were meant to take Christmas decorations down – although some people leave them up until Candlemas.
Epiphany is mainly celebrated by Catholics and Orthodox Christians. It’s a big and important festival in Spain, where it’s also known as ‘The festival of the three Magic Kings’‘Fiesta de Los tres Reyes Mages’, and is when Spanish and some other Catholic children receive their presents – as they are delivered by the Three Kings!
In Spain on Epiphany morning you might go to the local bakers and buy a special cake/pastry called a ‘Roscón’ (meaning a ring shaped roll). They are normally filled with cream or chocolate and are decorated with a paper crown. There is normally a figure of a king (if you find that you can wear the crown) and a dried bean (if you find that you’re meant to pay for the cake!). In Catalonia it’s known as a Tortell or Gâteau des Rois and is stuffed with marzipan.
In France you might eat a ‘Galette des Rois‘, a type of flat almond cake. It has a toy crown cooked inside it and is decorated on top with a gold paper crown.
There are similar traditions in Mexico where Epiphany is known as ‘El Dia de los Reyes’ (the day of The Three Kings). It’s traditional to eat a special cake called ‘Rosca de Reyes’ (Three Kings Cake). A figure of Baby Jesus is hidden inside the cake. Whoever has the baby Jesus in their piece of cake is the ‘Godparent’ of Jesus for that year.
In Portugal, people take part in Epiphany carol singing known as the ‘Janeiras’ (January songs). On the Island of Madeira they’re known as the ‘Cantar os Reis’ (singing the kings).
In Italy, some children also get their presents on Epiphany. But they believe that an old lady called ‘Befana’ brings them. Children put stockings up by the fireplace for Befana to fill.
In Austria, at Epiphany, some people write a special sign in chalk over their front door. It’s a reminder of the Wise Men that visited the baby Jesus. It’s made from the year split in two with initials of the names that are sometimes given to ‘the three wise men’, Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar, in the middle. So 2020 would be: 20CMB20. The sign is meant to protect the house for the coming year. Some parts of Germany also have the tradition of marking over doors. The ‘Four Hills’ Ski Jumping Tournament also finishes on 6th January in Bischofshofen, Austria.
At Epiphany in Belgium, children dress up as the three wise men and go from door to door to sing songs and people give them money or sweets, kind of like Trick or Treating on Halloween. Children in Poland also go out singing on Epiphany.
In Ireland, Epiphany is also sometimes called ‘Nollaig na mBean’ or Women’s Christmas. Traditionally the women get the day off and men do the housework and cooking! It is becoming more popular and many Irish women now get together on the Sunday nearest Epiphany and have tea and cakes!
In the Ethiopian Orthodox Church (which celebrates Christmas on 7th January), twelve days after Christmas, on 19th January, the three day celebration of Ethiopians Timkat starts. This celebrates Jesus’s baptism.
In New Orleans, Louisiana, in the USA, on Epiphany/King’s Day, the Christmas Tree is either take down or the ornaments are replaced with Purple, Gold and Green ones and it’s then called a ‘Mardi Gras Tree’! People also like to eat ‘King Cake’ (a cinnamon pastry with sugar on the top and sometimes filled with cream cheese or jelly/jam). The King Cake will have a little baby plastic doll inside (which represents Jesus); whoever gets the piece with the baby has to supply the next King Cake! Some people have “King Cake Party” every Friday before Lent (the time before Easter).

The blessing of the Epiphany waters always moves me, the dramatic exorcisms and benedictions really bring home the reconciliation of all Creation by the Incarnation…

Metropolitan Jerome of Selsey

FEAST OF THE HOLY FAMILY

He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all these things in her heart. And Jesus advanced [in] wisdom and age and favour before God and man.

Luke 2:51-52

On this, the Sunday within the Octave of Epiphany, we honour the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. In honouring them, we also honour all families, big or small. And in honouring all families, we honour the family of God, the Church. But most especially, we focus in on the hidden, day-to-day life of the Holy Family of Nazareth.
What was it like to live day in and day out in the household of St. Joseph? What was it like to have Jesus for a son, Mary as a wife and mother, and Joseph as a father and husband? Their home would have certainly been a sacred place and a dwelling of true peace and unity. But it would have also been so much more.
The family home of Jesus, Mary and Joseph would have been, in numerous ways, just like any other home. They would have related together, talked, had fun, disagreed, worked, eaten, dealt with problems, and encountered everything else that makes up daily family life.
Of course, the virtues of Jesus and Mary were perfect, and St. Joseph was a truly “just man.” Therefore, the overriding characteristic of their home would have been love.
But with that said, their family would not have been exempt from daily toil, hurt and challenges that face most families. For example, they would have encountered the death of loved ones, St. Joseph most likely passed away prior to Jesus’ public ministry. They would have encountered misunderstanding and gossip from others. Our Blessed Mother, for example, was found with child out of wedlock. This would have been a topic of discussion among many acquaintances for sure. They would have had to fulfil all daily chores, earn a living, put food on the table, attend gatherings of family and friends and the like. They would have lived normal family life in every way.
This is significant because it reveals God’s love for family life. The Father allowed His Divine Son to live this life and, as a result, elevated family life to a place within the Trinity. The holiness of the Holy Family reveals to us that every family is invited to share in God’s divine life and to encounter ordinary daily life with grace and virtue.
Reflect, today, upon your own family life. Some families are strong in virtue, some struggle with basic communication. Some are faithful day in and day out, some are broken and deeply wounded. No matter the case, know that God wants to enter more deeply into your family life just as it is right now. He desires to give you strength and virtue to live as the Holy Family. Surrender yourself and your family, this day, and invite the Triune God to make your family a holy family.

The Epiphany of our Lord shows the great fulfilment of His Promise to mankind. I resolve likewise to remain faithful in fulfilling the message to everyone in my life.

Bishop-elect Joash Jaime, Philippines

THE OLD ROMAN VIEW…

Another New Year provides another opportunity to make resolutions… what should Old Romans think about in framing their resolutions for another year?
One of the attributes often recognised about Old Romans is our resoluteness. Despite the trials and tribulations in the 150 years since annexation from Rome, Old Romans have persisted in maintaining our resolve to continue and perpetuate the primitive and orthodox Catholic Faith. Even and despite times when individuals have despaired and contemplated reconciliation with Rome, Archbishop Mathew among them, yet others remained steadfast, holding to the Truth of the Gospel and the apostolic teaching. Contemporary Old Romans are inheritors then of a great legacy of fidelity despite the odds, and we should resolve to continue and perpetuate this dogged adherence to the Truth.
How should we manifest this resolve? By continuing faithfully the perennial traditions and customs of the Latin Church for the benefit of contemporary and future generations. How do we do this? By “keeping on, keeping on”! Every mission, every parish, every oratory as a community and fellowship should resolve to grow in faith, hope and charity over the next year and every Old Roman personally determine to deepen and demonstrate their fidelity and commitment in love to Jesus Christ. Availing themselves of the Sacraments and making them available to as many as would be saved by the True Faith, the Faith of generations of saints, theologians, doctors of the Church and the apostles.
One thing we should all as Old Romans never take for granted, is the great blessing the Holy Ghost has perpetuated in our Church, the power and efficacy of the Sacraments. The priests among us should never cease to make available the restorative Sacraments of Penance and Eucharist, never fail to offer the august and most holy sacrifice of the Mass as they are able, daily if at all possible, lending their hearts and voices to Christ our great High Priest in prayer, praise and supplication. Likewise the faithful among us should strive to prefer the worship of almighty God above all things in life, attending and lending their voices and prayers to those of our priests, for themselves and for the communities we live in and would serve. So few have the consolation and assurance we Old Romans do of unquestionably valid Sacraments! Let us all neither abuse nor take for granted this gift of assured grace!
To help us all persevere in the resolve of our forbears, perhaps take to heart the message of the Primus in his homily for St Sylvester (Dec 31). When we are tired, weary, forlorn or despairing, when we are dejected, bored or otherwise tempted to forsake our resolve; imagine standing at the foot of the Cross before our Saviour in His Passion and “tell it to Jesus”… is the excuse we would give to recuse ourselves from our obligation to sacrifice our time, efforts and charity worthy of His act of selfless love in sacrifice for us? Perhaps keep about your person a crucifix and when tempted to miss Mass or divine service, when contemplating transgressing God’s law of charity, attempt to justify your intention to Our Saviour upon the Cross.

I have always experienced joy and comfort in the blessing of house lintels with chalk during Epiphany. Seeing the markings over a door throughout the year is a lasting reminder that Christ is with me and my household. It is an experience of security and warmth.

Eddie’s Service

EDDI, priest of St. Wilfrid
In his chapel at Manhood End,
Ordered a midnight service
For such as cared to attend.
But the Saxons were keeping Christmas,
And the night was stormy as well.
Nobody came to service,
Though Eddi rang the bell.
‘Wicked weather for walking,’
Said Eddi of Manhood End.
‘But I must go on with the service
For such as care to attend.
The altar-lamps were lighted, –
An old marsh-donkey came,
Bold as a guest invited,
And stared at the guttering flame.
The storm beat on at the windows,
The water splashed on the floor,
And a wet, yoke-weary bullock
Pushed in through the open door.
‘How do I know what is greatest,
How do I know what is least?
That is My Father’s business,’
Said Eddi, Wilfrid’s priest.
‘But – three are gathered together –
Listen to me and attend.
I bring good news, my brethren!’
Said Eddi of Manhood End.
And he told the Ox of a Manger
And a Stall in Bethlehem,
And he spoke to the Ass of a Rider,
That rode to Jerusalem.
They steamed and dripped in the chancel,
They listened and never stirred,
While, just as though they were Bishops,
Eddi preached them The Word,
Till the gale blew off on the marshes
And the windows showed the day,
And the Ox and the Ass together
Wheeled and clattered away.
And when the Saxons mocked him,
Said Eddi of Manhood End,
‘I dare not shut His chapel
On such as care to attend.’

Eddi Eddius Stephanus, a Kentishman and chaplain to St Wilfrid, author of the Latin Life of Wilfrid later edited by J. Raine in The Historians of the Church of York and its Archbishops, vol. i (1879). It is available in the Penguin Classics Lives of the Saints, trans. J. F. Webb (1965).
Manhood End a real hamlet in the neighbourhood of Selsey, West Sussex. It was granted to Wilfrid by Ethelwald, King of the South Saxons.

The season of Epiphany has (along with Advent) some of the most striking office hymns of the liturgical year “Bethlehem of noblest cities” and “Why impious Herod dost thou Fear?” The Collect is also very powerful when it speaks of how after this life we may “attain the fruition of thy glorious Godhead.” This points to the central purpose of the Christian life, to become by grace what He is by nature. St. Augustine develops this theme further in the “City of God” when he speaks of the final rest without weariness in the end without end.

A New Year Message

My Dearest friends,

Blessed and praised be Jesus Christ!
The gift we remember at Christmas doesn’t stop having profound importance to us after the 25th of December! Rather we must carry it with us in faith forward into this brand-new year 2020. This gift that we are given, which we celebrated at Christmas, the incarnation, is the answer to all the pain and suffering in the world. God does not leave us friendless and alone, rather he gives us a tangible and powerful gift, that of his very self. Not himself sitting on some cloud somewhere, passing down commandments through some intermediary, rather in a new way, in his own voice and in his own flesh.
God in an act of unspeakable love and humility, took upon himself the nature of that which is lower than the angels, that of his very creation! Jesus entered human history as a specific place in space and time, and the world was changed for ever. This little baby born in a manger, would go on to change the world beyond all recognition, and the story of this birth would go on to be spread in all the earth.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son. Because God gave us his son, let us not be hesitant about giving him ourselves. It really doesn’t matter how grubby you or I feel, or how unworthy we may think we are as a gift, there is nothing that we can give him which can match the gift that he gives us, but because he is infinitely loving and infinitely gracious he accepts us as we are, grubbiness and all, he takes us to himself and raises us up and makes us cleaner than we can possibly imagine.
He took flesh and walked among us, he knew us in a personal way, and because of this we have been given the gift of being able always to go to him and of our blessed lord listening to us with tenderness and compassion. In his amazing grace he loves me and he loves you, he loves us all exactly the way we are…. But he loves us too much to want us to stay that way. He summons us onwards to grow in love of him and love of one another.
As we glorify him for what he has done in our earth and our lives, let us offer ourselves with a renewed sense of purpose, he can and will take us and use us for his glory. Even when all seems hopeless, let us trust in him and his power to save. Let us therefore continue to consecrate ourselves to his service and his Glory and glorify him and lift him high in this new year 2020.
Wishing you all a very happy new year!
Brother Juniper Mary n/CDC
