“What is a house blessing?
The Purpose of Easter House Blessing
In the Bible, God blessed the houses of His servants for His purposes and glory (Genesis 39:5; Ezekiel 44:30). There is nothing that indicates that a ritual preceded the blessing. God simply blessed his people who were following in obedience to Him.
House blessings are rites intended to protect the inhabitants of a house or apartment from misfortune, whether before moving into it or to “heal” it after an occurrence. Many religions have house blessings of one form or another
In Christianity, house blessing is an ancient tradition, that can be found in Roman Catholicism, and some branches of Protestantism. In Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, Anglicanism, Methodism and Orthodoxy, they are usually performed by a pastor who may sprinkle holy water (depending on denominational tradition) as he walks through every room of the house, accompanied by the occupants of the house, whilst praying for the occupants.
The purpose of the Easter house blessing is that through the ministry of the priest Jesus Christ may enter your home to bring you peace and joy. This happens above all through the reading of the Word of God and the prayer of the Church.
