Epiphany Blessings

Inspired by Dom Thaddäus and the German-speaking world, Dom Leo blessed the entrance to the Guest Wing with the traditional chalking of the letters C-M-B and the year. The letters stand for the names traditionally given to the wise men (Caspar, Melchior, Balthasar) and for the Latin phrase “Christus mansionem benedicat” (May Christ bless this dwelling).
