Blessing of a Domicile

T Polyphilus

This ceremony is to be performed by any member of the clergy (novice or ordained) as a service to an individual household within the Church. The officer is designated as the OFFICIANT. The ritual requires a Book of the Law, a candle, a bell, a censer and incense, and vial of Holy Oil. The inhabitants of the domicile must be members of the Church, and must be present for the ceremony. Other guests may attend, as desired.
It may be convenient for the inhabitant(s) to carry the censer and/or vial of Oil when they are not being used by the Officiant.

The OFFICIANT stands in the midst of the central common area of the domicile. Facing East, s/he draws a deep breath, pressing the right forefinger against the lower lip of the closed mouth, then dashes down the hand with a great sweep back and out, crying:

OFFICIANT: APO PANTOS KAKODAIMONOS!

If desired, he may enact an entire pentagram ritual.

OFFICIANT: Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

INHABITANT(S): Love is the law, love under will. The OFFICIANT lights the candle.
