Home Blessing

Purify me with hyssop, Lord, and I shall be clean of sin. Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Have mercy on me, God in Your great kindness. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

All: As it was in the beginning, etc.
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.

All: And let my cry be heard by You.
P: The Lord be with you.

All: May He also be with you.

Let us pray.
Hear us, holy Lord and Father, almighty everlasting God, and in Your goodness send Your holy angel from heaven to watch over and protect all who live in this home, to be with them and give them comfort and encouragement; through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

Let us pray.
Lord Jesus Christ, as I, in all humility, enter this home, let there enter with me abiding happiness and God's choicest blessings. Let serene joy pervade this home and charity abound here and health never fail.

Let no evil spirits approach this place but drive them far away.

Let Your angels of peace take over and put down all wicked strife.

Teach us, O Lord, to recognize the majesty of Your holy name.

Sanctify our humble visit and bless what we are about to do; You who are holy, You who are kind, You who abide with the Father and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.

All: Amen.
