May God’s peace, love and mercy be with you all!
It is a good thing to have your house blessed by a priest in that way all evil spirits will depart from that house. You can even have your car blessed at the same time.
I also have crucifixes, bibles, miraculous medals etc. blessed also for my own use or to be given away as gifts to friends, family or strangers. I don’t usually give those things away to people unless they are blessed by the priest.
I also keep holy water and blessed oil. I usually bless myself with holy water or blessed oil by making the sign of the cross in the morning and before I go to bed (best way to get a good night’s sleep without being disturbed by any evil spirits)
You can get the holy water in the Church but you can also just bring your own water and olive oil for the priest to bless. You can buy the containers from Catholic bookstores. You can approach any priest at any time and they would be very happy to bless it for you.
It’s interesting that in my experience, God always provides the priest if I have anything blessed. Like when I went to a Catholic bookstore to buy some papal crucifixes, I told Our Dear Lord that I needed to have the items blessed before I gave them away and that I know He is going to provide the priest, so as I walked out of the Cathedral bookstore, of all people to meet, I see this priest getting in the elevator. As I called out to him the elevator door closed right away and I saw the elevator go up the 5th floor. So, I said to Our Good Lord, I trust that He will provide the priest to bless them. So, I waited for the elevator door to open so I can go to the parking lot and as soon as the elevator door opened, there he was, the priest who went to the 5th floor went back down to the 1st floor. So, he blessed the crucifixes and I was very thankful for it. At one time, I needed to have miraculous medals blessed, so again I asked Our Good Lord about it and when I went to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception on an ordinary day at about 10 am, there were 2 priests outside (one was hearing the confession of the other, what an awesome moment to witness! God’s mercy in action!) and the Bishop was happily walking along the Cathedral grounds at the other end. God truly has a good sense of humor. There are instances also wherein I needed to go to confession or receive holy communion that He always provides the priest.
Jesus, Our Good God, is the caretaker of our souls and if we trust in Him, He never fails us. He always provides.
Welcome home to the fullness of Truth in the Catholic Church.
Blessed be Jesus and Mary!
