It is a ritual here when the parish priest and his assistant will individually visit houses to bless them. A prayer will be recited for the wellbeing of the members of the household and together with family members the ceremony is concluded by singing a hymn, the choice of the hymn being that of the head of the family.
The priest will then spray holy water going around – a tiring process. The priest will then spend time chatting with the family. A donation is also given.
We are waiting for the arrival of the priest The house is spic and span The altar is lit with LED candles. These candles were gifted to me.
Do you have this ritual where you live?
