I covered this lovely old custom in my last RCIA class.

I long for the good old day, when priests would bless our houses. They just don't make priests like that any more...

I've blessed more homes in the last five years than I did in the previous 15.

Fr., Where is access to the prayer to bless your home? I would like my husband to bless our home, but don't know the prayer? Our priest is to busy to ask him to come to our home. Bless you for taking the time to bless homes!

I wonder if peeople don't know they can have their homes be blessed? That's not the case here in my parish. Our two priest are always blessing homes, cars, whatever and its wonderful. IN fact, we just recently had an engaged couple ask for a special blessing which was done during mass. People are still commenting on it.

You ask our priest to do it and he screams, "If I have time." That is one stressed priest. Maybe they should teach stress management at the seminary. It's not nice to get yelled at!
