Catholic Prayer: Blessing of the Advent Wreath

Description:

Before using your Advent wreath, it is appropriate to bless the wreath. This blessing can be performed at home in the family.

Prayer:

Father:

Our help is in the Name of the Lord.
All answer:Who made heaven and earth.
Father:

Let us pray. O God, by whose word all things are sanctified, pour forth Thy blessing upon this wreath, and grant that we who use it may prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ and may receive from Thee abundant graces. Through Christ our Lord.

All:Amen.
He sprinkles the wreath with holy water
