Epiphany House Blessing
The liturgy for the feast may include a solemn blessing or prayer over the people. It may be used in place of the simple blessing after Communion. The deacon or priest invites the Assembly to bow their heads and pray for God’s blessing. He then extends his hands over the people while he says or sings:
God has called you out of darkness,
into his wonderful light.
May you experience his kindness and blessings,
and be strong in faith, in hope, and in love. (Amen)
Because you are followers of Christ,
who appeared on this day as a light shining in darkness,
may he make you a light to all your sisters and brothers. (Amen)
The wise men followed the star,
And found Christ who is light from light.
May you too find the Lord
when your pilgrimage is ended. (Amen)
May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, and +the Holy Spirit. (Amen)
