Okay to sage your home to bless it?

Is it okay to bless a home using smoking sage throughout each room? Does that Catholic church allow such a blesssing or cleansing of a home?

Dear friend,

Absolutely not! Saging is new age nonsense. Lord know what spirits such actions satisfy. They are certainly not of Him. To have your house blessed by a priest is putting it in the hands of God.
