    Again, Thank You.  :) 

    I don't think I knew about the Trinity Knot though. I did know about the Celtic pagan rituals.  I don't think I have ever seen this symbol used in conjunction with The Holy Trinity though.  Not that I'm saying your wrong of course. Just that I have never seen it myself.  

    There was a time when I would watch Charmed evey chance I got. :)  Now, not so much.  And yes, that is the symbol they used but I think they called it something else.  

    Quite an interesting knowledge of history.  :)  

    Quoting SusanTheWriter:

    Yes, it's Celtic. Anthropologically, there's no specific religious meaning attached to a triquetra. It's also called a Trinity Knot.

    You'll see it used by Celtic-influenced Pagans to represent the Three Crones or the circle of life, death and rebirth. There are any number of triple meanings that could be represented by a triquetra. I never watched "Charmed," but I understand it's a symbol they used, as well.

    Christians use it to represent the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Thank you.  :)  

    Correct me if I am wrong here, but I believe that that symbol is a Celtic symbol ??   

    Quoting SusanTheWriter:

    No problem. :) I found this little blessing somewhere and said it at each doorway of my house. I also took some lavender oil and used a drop to "paint" a triquetra on each door jamb.

    May the Trinity bless this home

    making it sacred and pure

    so that nothing but love and joy

    shall enter through the door.

    And this is a triquetra:

    ooooh I am burning with curiousity over your Doorway Blessing/Prayer. I wouldn't mind if you talked about what it is you do...?  You can explain in a pm if need be. :)

    It's also Candlemas, St Brigid's Day and Imbolc!

    My mom and I did some big housecleaning yesterday and this morning I did a doorway blessing/prayer.

    Today is a great day to turn away from winter and begin looking to spring! Spring cleaning, renewal, new beginnings and rejuvenation are timely themes for this season. :)
