Objects

 

We bless objects for many reasons.

  • Blessed icons or other images or objects in the household to use as a part of regular prayer
  • Tools or objects that provide an occasion to give thanks and recognize the joy and responsibility of human labor, recreation, and devotion
  • A vehicle that makes it possible to overcome distance and come together for meetings, visits, and other forms of social contact
  • Boats and other vehicles that are essential to our livelihood and to protect those who use them
