EWTN Catholic Q&A
holy water
Question from laura on 01-28-2008:

I have another question, I forgot how to bless my house or my children with holy water-used to know yrs ago. Being a returning catholic-I am not sure of the correct words to use when blessing property eg house/car/kids' rooms and my children. I have holy water and basically dipped my clean hand in it several times and made the sign of the cross and said "I bless so-and-so room in the name of the father/son/holy spirit and ask for the angel's protection for so-and-so in keeping them safe. Thanks, Father for all your wonderful help and support and may you have many blessings in life-sincerely, laura

PS-i have tried researching and found too many information that confused me further.
