To Bless Objects

THE BLESSING RITE

(For the blessing and consecration of objects).

Light candles and incense. Have holy water and holy oil on hand.

If blessing candles, make sure they are cleaned with olive, almond or jojoba oil for the candle itself. If using a votive candle in glass container, use window cleaner for the glass. Make sure statues or other objects to be blessed are clean, as well.

Opening prayers:

In the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

~

Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One.

She Who is Mari.

She Who is Kora.

She Who is the Great Mother.

Blessed is She.

or

Blessed is Our Mother God, the Holy One.

She Who is the Celestial Mother.

She Who is the Holy Daughter.

She Who is the Great Mother.

Blessed is She.

~

Sprinkle (asperge) the candle or object with holy water three times. Then, trace the Fora over the object while saying: May this (name object) be blessed in the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

Take the incense, whether cone or resin, and trace the solar cross over the item and then circle the incense three times clockwise beneath the item, enfolding the object in the smoke while saying: May this (name object) be consecrated: In the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

Finally, dip forefinger in holy oil and trace the Fora on the object while saying: May this (name object) be anointed in the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

End by tracing the Fora upon yourself.
