I absolutely believe it is efficacious to have a blessing done on the house - sort of an exorcism of the dwelling I guess. Did the priest chalk above the doorways with the initials of the 3 Magi, the date and a † ?

besides the holy water and ritual words - blessed chalk is used to bless all the door ways (that lead outside) the house - I do not know off hand about the 3 magi and why their names are used... I used to know maybe it will come back to me again.

Yes I believe in this one, it may drive bad elements away and pave way to a peaceful living. We also had a house blessing when we first tranferred to our house. And I know almost all of my friends and relatives had their house blessed before moving in their new houses. I believe that with God's blessings you will live in the house safe and with His protection things will be in place.

yes I think it could make your home safe from bad elements if it was blessed. thats just my own opinion of course. I think those rites do work.
