Blessing the New Home

Time to bless the new home.  Fr. Tom was here for the feast of the epiphany but we could not get all the kids together so we waited one day. 

 Father Tom is one of our best friends in the world.  He knows that we in the T family use every moment we can to teach.  He decided to bless the salt and then the water as part of the ceremony to teach the kiddos.  We had some Holy water already but we blessed it again and added to our supply.
 The ceremony for a new home blessing can be found at this link.
 It is just so cool having a priest in the family.

 The tradition of the Epiphany Blessing is explained in this link.

It is all official now.  Our new family home is blessed.  We have had the demons expelled (hopefully there were not any) and the house was promised to a home for the faithful.  J marked the front door with all the kids watching.  This home is so much more than just a building for our family.  We will serve the Lord by loving and caring for each other in this home.  We have now idea was the future holds, but to me this picture shares with you our promise to give that future to the Lord.
