Tall ships (porthole)

Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar

This time last year in housegroup we got all artistic and created banners reading 20 C ✞ M ✞ B 17, follow the Catholic tradition of chalking a blessing above the front door of your house. So since it's the start of a new year it was time to dig out the pens and put together another banner...

The CMB stands for two things: it's the initials of the three wise men (Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar), and it's the initials of the blessing Christus Mansionem Benedicat (may Christ bless this house).
