13. BLESSING OF ANY PRIESTLY VESTMENT

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.

Almighty everlasting God, giver of all good things and bountiful bestower of all graces, we humbly beg you to endow us with the power of your blessing. May it also please you to bless, + by the work of the Holy Spirit, this amice (or alb, or cincture, or stole, or maniple, or tunic, or dalmatic, or chasuble, or cope, or humeral veil) made ready for divine worship. Kindly let the grace of your holy mysteries descend on all who are to use it, so that they may appear holy, pure, and blameless in your presence, and may be aided by your mercy; through Christ our Lord.

All: Amen.

It is sprinkled with holy water.
