Strange: had the council asked their parish priest to do it, it would have cost them nothing.
A number of times I have been in to “pray through” a house: a little bit of holy water, a few short prayers giving permission for release. Sorted.
In case anyone might find this useful…
For the releasing of spirits within a home
In the name of the +Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Go forth, Christian soul, from this world
in the name of God the almighty Father, who created you,
in the name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, who suffered for you,
in the name of the Holy Spirit, who was poured out upon you.
Go forth, faithful Christian!
May you live in peace this day,
may your home be with God in Zion,
with Mary, the virgin Mother of God,
with Joseph, and all the angels and saints. .
May you return to your Creator
who formed you from the dust of the earth.
May holy Mary, the angels, and all the saints
come to meet you as you go forth from this life.
May you see your Redeemer face to face.
May the Angels, the Saints, the Prophets and the Patriarchs join us/me in prayer as we ask for God’s blessing on this house.
May it be filled with joy, with laughter, with the Saviour’s love
May it be free from fear, from anger, from resentment
May all who dwell within it live in the love of Christ
We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Lord. Amen
Joining our prayers with the whole company of heaven we join our prayers with those of the blessed virgin:
Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death. Amen.
Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
May Almighty God +bless us and keep us, now and forever. Amen.
