A Question About Sacramentals


#1

I’ve only been confirmed for a few months so I am new to the whole sacramental thing. Is it necessary that they be blessed by a priest before using or wearing?


#2

While priestly blessings for sacramentals are good to have and many Catholics seek them, they are not absolutely necessary. For example, someone who is enrolled in the brown scapular by a priest does not need to seek a priestly blessing for brown scapulars obtained and worn subsequent to the enrollment.
