Why Bless Our Homes

“Therefore, O King who loves humankind, do You Yourself be present now as then through the descent of Your Holy Spirit, and sanctify this water.” Through sprinkling, by sealing with the sign of cross and by drinking of the blessed water, the faithful are cleansed and sanctified. The sanctified water is used for the healing of soul and body, and for protection against evil. The Church prays in this Rite of the Blessing of the Waters: “that those who sprinkle and partake thereof may receive it for the cleansing of souls and bodies, for the healing of sickness, for the sanctification of houses, and sufficient for every need.” The blessed water we receive on Epiphany is like the healing water that flows into our lives from the throne of God, nourishing our thirsty souls that they may bear fruit for God’s glory. The holy water that we receive at Epiphany should remind us of Jesus Who is the water of life, Who alone is able to satisfy the deepest thirst of the soul. Jesus said: “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.” Jn.7:37-38 It is Jesus-the Water of life-Who blessed the waters of the earth when He stepped into the Jordan River to be baptized. Thus, by her consecration of the waters, the Church frees water from the dark evil powers that reside in it. Holy water becomes the symbol of nature set free from sin and consecrated by the Holy Spirit to our blessing and the blessing of our homes.

Чому Посвячувати Наш Дім?

       «Сам, отже, чоловіколюбче Царю, прийди й нині нашестям Святого Духа, освяти воду оцю.» Віру нашої Схидньої Церкви в силу і благословення йорданської води найкраще віддзеркалює зміст молитов та обрядів Великого Водосвяття. У тих молитвах багато разів призиваємо св. Духа, щоб зійшов, очистив і освятив боду і надав їй лікувальну силу на користь душі і тіла. «Щоб освятилися води ці силою, діянням і зшестям св. Духа», щоб вода ця стала даром освячення, ізбавління від гріхів, на зцілення душі і тіла, і на всяку особливу користь», щоб була вона на очищення душ і тілес усім, що з вірою черпають і причащаються нею».
