Catholic Prayer: Easter Water

Description:

Sacramental in character, too, is the custom of using Easter holy water to bless our homes, Easter eggs, meat for the Easter dinner, and bread and cake baked in rings to symbolize eternity. The formula for blessing holy water contains the following prayer. [The official formula of this blessing may have been altered, but families may still recite this prayer, for the principles remain the same.]

Prayer:

Whatever it sprinkles in the homes of the faithful, may it be cleansed and delivered from harm. Let such homes enjoy a spirit of goodness and an atmosphere of tranquility, freed from harmful or hidden snares. By the sprinkling of this water, may everything opposed to the safety of them that dwell there be banished, so that they may possess the well-being they seek in calling upon Thy holy Name, protected from every evil.
