A few action shots from the Blessing of Epiphany Water on the Vigil of Epiphany, 5 January, at St. Mary’s in Pine Bluff, WI.
The Rite is mighty powerful, involving first the singing of the Litany of Saints, the exorcism of the place, then the singing of Vespers, the exorcism and blessing of the elements of salt and water, their combination and blessing, and the Te Deum.
It was not really advertised, and it involved mostly a group of men who have a schola. There might have been cigars and beverages involved afterwards. Maybe.
