3 comments on What Things Can Be Blessed By A Catholic Priest?
Another good and informative topic. I am not surprised to hear that Fr. Rich is out there every day blessing people and objects. Blessings are a sacramental and not a sacrament as Ryan Scheel pointed out. Some blessings have a specific rite or ritual associated with it such as the blessing of the home or the blessing of a scapular.
Blessings are a protection against demons. Demons hate blessed people and objects. There are some things that ordinary people can bless but the best blessings are from the clergy and there are some blessings that only they can give. It is a rite or ritual.
A blessing before traveling or vacation traveling is possible by your parish priest. Special occasions and/or just have your marriage blessed. Get your animals blessed on St. Francis of Assisi feast day. Get your car blessed.
Blessings on you guys and all of us in Internet land!
My understanding us that blessed objects must be burned ir buried in the earth. How do you dispose of a blessed car?
Regarding whether extraordinary Eucharistic ministers can give blessings, i am a Eucharistic minister in my parish, and my parish priest says to us that when someone has not been baptised comes up to us with their hands crossed over their chest for a blessing, i can lay my hand on their head and say ” May the Lord bless you and keep you”. Am i giving them a blessing? is it allowed? I think Fr Pegano mentioned that we cannot give blessings.
Blessings to you all!
