About Blessings

There is a lot of talk today about “blessings.” What are blessings? Who can receive blessings? What difference do blessings make? The Bible tells us to “bless those who curse us, and to pray for those who persecute us.” So, blessings are not just for family and friends, or even just for fellow believers. For example, at the conclusion of every Mass, a general blessing is given to everyone who happens to be present in the church building.

What is more, those who are truly “blessed,” cannot help but become a blessing to others in both word and deed, bringing people to repentance and salvation.

By the way, the word blessing means a “good word,” or a “bene-diction,” and what the world needs right now is more good words that are followed up by even more good deeds. In the meantime, “God bless you!”


God the Father of mercies, through the death and resurrection of his Son,
has reconciled the world to himself and poured out the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of our sins.
Through the ministry of the church, God grants us the blessings of pardon and peace!

The Lord in his love and mercy helps us with the grace of the Holy Spirit.
The Lord who frees us from sin saves us and raises us up.
Let us repent of our sins and receive the blessings of the Gospel!

The Body of the Lord has been given up for us as a saving sacrifice for our sins.
The Blood of the new covenant has been poured out for the forgiveness of our sins.
Let us always thankfully remember how Christ has blessed us with the gift of salvation!
