From the Pastor

Blessings are called "sacramentals" because they prepare us to receive


the grace of the sacraments and help us to grow to be more like Christ
(see Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1670). Blessings consist of prayer,
Scripture, and sometimes a special ritual sign. People are accustomed to
seeing bishops, priests, and deacons blessing objects or persons in the
name of the Church. However, there are other blessings, like the ones
contained in Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers, that can be prayed by
anyone who has been baptized, "in virtue of the universal priesthood, a
dignity they possess because of their baptism and confirmation". The
blessings given by laypersons are exercised because of their special office,
such as parents on behalf of their children.
Right after telling his disciples to "love your enemies, do good to those
who hate you," Jesus instructs them to "bless those who curse you, pray
for those who mistreat you" (Lk 6:28). St. Paul echoes the Lord's
command when he exhorts the Romans to "bless those who persecute
[you], bless and do not curse them" (Rom 12:14). St. Peter urges that
each time we are on the receiving end of evil, we should return "a
blessing, because to this you were called, that you might inherit a
blessing" (1 Pt 3:9).
Like the Lord into whom they have been baptized, parents should
bless and pray for their children. Each one of us should remember the
sick and those who suffer. Each time we gather around the family table,
we should bless God and the food he has given us. On special occasions,
we will observe the traditions of the season, sanctifying by prayer and
blessing all the seasons of grace that God has given to us. (taken from the
website of the USCCB)
