Today (and on his July 20th feast day) Father Dennis blessed cars and bicycles.

The prayer for the blessing:

Lord our God, You make the clouds your chariot. You ride on the wings of the wind. You sent to your servant Elias a fiery chariot to carry him up to heaven. You guided man to invent amazing means of transportation.

Therefore, O Lord, we humbly ask You to bless our cars and bicycles. Send to their drivers Guardian Angels to protect them from all harm.

Make them arrive safely to their destination through the intercession of Our Lady of Guidance and St Elias-the-Living and all your saints.

For in your ineffable Providence, You are the Provider of all good things and to You we render glory, thanksgiving and worship, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever. Amen.

The priest sprinkles each care with Holy Water saying:

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