To mark the Epiphany every classroom and the entrance at reception are displaying 20+C+M+B+19
This is a reminder that every time we enter our school or classroom we are asking for God’s blessing on our lives and on this place.
- 2019 means 2,019 years since Jesus’ birth
- C is for Casper
- M is for Melchior
- B is for Balthazar
Casper, Melchior and Balthazar are names traditionally given to the Wise men who visited Jesus from faraway. Their initials CMB also abbreviate the Latin words Christus mansionem benedicat, “May Christ bless the house”.
Lord God of heaven and earth,
you revealed your Son to every nation
by the light of a star.
Bless our school
And all who study and work here
and those who visit us.
Fill us with the light of Christ
that our love for one another
reflects your love for all peoples.
We pray for children everywhere.
