Let us pray that he will enter this home and bless it with his presence. May he always be here among you; may be nurture your love for each other, share in your joys, comfort you in your sorrow. Inspired by his teachings and example, seek to make your new home before all else a dwelling place of love, diffusing far and wide the goodness of Christ.
Into whatever house you enter first say, ‘Peace to this household.’ If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you, for the laborer deserves his payment.
Lord, be close to your servants
who move into this home
and ask for your blessing.
Be their shelter when they are at home,
their companion when they are away,
and their welcome guest when they return.
