House Blessing

Father Chris Bae came to bless Ester's new house.  Ester is a member of Our Lady of Hope Prayer Group and she invited all of us to the house blessing.  Once all of us were present, Father Chris poured a little salt on a napkin and some water in a cup.  He then blessed the cup and salt and poured the salt into the cup and blessed it.  He prayed out of a Book of Blessings, which also included some readings.  Then we all followed Father Chris walking through every single room, blessing it by sprinkling holy water in every nook and cranny.  He blessed each person, too.

Everyone ate and socialized.  Father Chris, too.

This picture is Father Chris blessing the salt and holy water.  Ester is watching from the stairs.
