The Blessing of a Car

Priest: Let us pray to the Lord.
Response: Lord, have mercy.

Priest: Lord our God, You make the clouds your conveyance; You travel on the wings of the wind; you sent to your servant Elijah a fiery chariot as a means of conveyance; You guided man to invent this car which is as fast as the wind: Therefore, O Lord, pour now upon it your heavenly blessings. Grant unto it a guardian angel that it may be guided upon the rightful road and be preserved against all harm. Enable those who ride in this car to arrive safely at their destination.

For in your ineffable Providence, You are the Provider of all things, and to You we give glory, to Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and always and for ever and ever. Amen.

[The priest sprinkles the car three times with holy water, each time saying:]

May this car be blessed + in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
