What does the Bible say about blessing the property?


Good evening, Priest Vasile. What do you think about the tradition of blessing the house or the car by a priest? Is it biblical? Thank you in advance once again and God bless!

This definition would explain the essence of blessing the property by a priest:

 … By sprinkling holy water and by special prayers of the priest, the house blessed in the beginning is cleansed by all evil and all evil work, due to the sins of those who live in it or due to malicious people or spirits of evil.

This kind of blessing is not mentioned in the New Testament and it was neither practiced by early Christians nor taught to be practiced by the Apostles. On this topic I recommend you to read the article “What the Bible says about the holy water?“.
