What Does it Mean to Be Blessed?
When something is blessed by a Catholic priest, it’s set apart for a holy purpose and is no longer merely a material thing.
That means if you are baptized Christian, you have been consecrated and elevated to a higher purpose.
Fr. Mike reminds us, to be holy is not to be perfect. Rather, it is to be blessed by God, and when God blesses something he sets it apart so it may more effectively do his will in this world.
