Blessing of Epiphany Water during Vespers on the Vigil



FSSP Priest Epiphany House Blessing using Blessed Chalk

EPIPHANY WATER BLESSING VIGIL OF EPIPHANY
The only place in Georgia where Epiphany water will be blessed will be on the Vigil of the Epiphany, Sunday January 5th starting at 5:30 pm. at St Francis de Sales in Mableton Georgia , Atlanta Diocese. The ancient blessing of Epiphany water is done during vespers on the eve of the great feast day. The blessing is long &; complex and the water is very powerful. This water is used during the Epiphany Blessing of homes that begin the following day and throughout the octave. Make sure any water containers you bring have your name on the container.

EPIPHANY HOME BLESSING
The only place in Georgia where you can have gold, incense, myrrh, and chalk blessed on the Epiphany will be at the parish of St Francis de Sales on Monday January 6th 2020, see web site below, for mass schedules for the Feast Day. Ask your local priest to use the Roman Ritual and perform the Epiphany House Blessing on your home. The ceremony is in the Roman Ritual, and the English translation is below for you to follow along. All Catholic priests may use the traditional Roman Ritual pursuant to Summorum Pontificum, without seeking any type of permission.

It is that time of year for your priest to come to your home and bless your house during the Octave of the Epiphany. He will use the Epiphany water blessed at vespers on the Vigil of the Epiphany and the chalk and incense blessed on the Feast of the Epiphany. Here is the English translation of the ritual.
( Please note the Father of the House will lead the priest from room to room with a lighted blessed candle-also all who enter for the first time after the blessing do so with their right foot)

As the priest comes into the home he says:
P: God's peace be in this home.
All: And in all who live here.
P. Ant.: Magi from the East came to Bethlehem to adore the Lord; and opening their treasure chests they presented Him with precious gifts: gold for the great King, incense for the true God, and myrrh in symbol of His burial. Alleluia.
Canticle of the Magnificat
Luke 1.46-55
P: "My soul * extols the Lord;
All: And my spirit leaps for joy in God my Savior.
P: How graciously He looked upon His lowly maid! * Oh, see, from this hour onward age after age will call me blessed!
All: How sublime is what He has done for me, * the Mighty One, whose name is 'Holy'!
P: From age to age He visits those * who worship Him in reverence.
All: His arm achieves the mastery: * He routs the haughty and proud of heart.
P: He puts down princes from their thrones, * and exalts the lowly;
All: He fills the hungry with blessings, * and sends away the rich with empty hands.
P: He has taken by the hand His servant Israel, * and mercifully kept His faith,
All: As He had promised our fathers * with Abraham and his posterity forever and evermore."
P: Glory be to the Father.
All: As it was in the beginning.
Meanwhile the home is sprinkled with holy water and incensed. At the end of the Magnificat the antiphon is repeated. Then the priest says Our Father (the rest inaudibly until:)
P: And lead us not into temptation.
All: But deliver us from evil.
P: Many shall come from Saba.
All: Bearing gold and incense.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.
All: And let my cry be heard by you.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May he also be with you.
Let us pray.
God, who on this day revealed your only-begotten Son to all nations by the guidance of a star, grant that we who now know you by faith may finally behold you in your heavenly majesty; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
Responsory: Be enlightened and shine forth, O Jerusalem, for your light is come; and upon you is risen the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ born of the Virgin Mary.
P: Nations shall walk in your light, and kings in the splendor of- your birth.
All: And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Let us pray.
Lord God almighty, bless + this home, and under its shelter let there be health, chastity, self-conquest, humility, goodness, mildness, obedience to your commandments, and thanksgiving to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. May your blessing remain always in this home and on those who live here; through Christ our Lord. All: Amen.

Bless each room with incense and Epiphany Water. Write the Magi’s initials, connected by Crosses, and the year’s numbers over the exterior doors with the blessed chalk, like this:

Intoning the Veni Creator Spiritus at Midnight of the New Year

NEW YEARS EVE AND NEW YEARS DAY
The only known midnight mass and opportunity to gain two plenary indulgences on January the 1st (Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord) in the State of Georgia will be at the parish of St Francis de Sales in Mableton. Prior to the midnight mass, there will be a  Holy Hour, confessions, and benediction followed by the public singing of the Te Deum starts at 11:00 pm. Immediately following the Te Deum there will be a Low Mass at Midnight. After the Mass there will be the public singing of the Veni Creator Spiritus.  The public recitation of the Te Deum before midnight gains a plenary indulgence, AND the public recitation of the Veni Creator Spiritus after midnight carries another plenary indulgence. They both carry the usual conditions so you can receive confession and communion all in the same evening. A rare opportunity to gain two plenary indulgences on one trip to church. Also there will be another Low Mass on the Feast Day at 9:00 am and a HIGH MASS at 11:30 am. Confessions are heard before all masses. The Veni Creator Spiritus will be recited and or sung at both of the these masses to gain the indulgence

For info see https://fsspatl.com/

 Holy Mother Church provides two plenary indulgences on the last and first day of the year, see below ( usual conditions apply)

§ 1. A plenary indulgence is granted to the Christian faithful who, in a church or in an oratory, are present [take part] in a recitation or solemn chant of: ...
1° the hymn Veni Creator ... on the first day of the year, imploring divine assistance for the whole of the coming year...

UPDATED INFO:
High Mass at St. Francis de Sales is the first part, and begins at 11:30 AM, with confessions heard immediately following the second Low Mass. If you do not normally attend this mass, be aware that arriving early is generally wise, due to high attendance causing limited space available.
