P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

All: Who made heaven and earth.

P: The Lord be with you.

All: May He also be with you.

Let us pray.

Lord God almighty, who by the coming of your only begotten Son sanctified all things for your faithful, we beg you to bless + and prosper this marble-factory, and to protect your servants who work here from every kind of adversity. Grant also that they may so pursue their work as to have it be a means of their salvation, meriting to be living and chosen stones in the everlasting dwelling of your majesty; through Christ our Lord. All: Amen.

It is sprinkled with holy water.
