Blessing for your Crib at Home

Gather with all who live in the house.

The eldest person leads the prayer and the youngest blesses the crib with Holy Water after the blessing is offered:

God of every nation and people, from the very beginning of creation you have made manifest your love:

when our need for a Saviour was great you sent your Son to be born of the Virgin Mary.

To our lives he brings joy and peace, justice, mercy, and love.

Lord, bless all who look upon this crib;
may it remind us of the humble birth of Jesus,
and raise up our thoughts to him,
who is God-with-us and Saviour of all,
and who lives and reigns forever and ever.

Amen.
