I have a few questions about the blessing of religious habits during the clothing/investiture ceremony of a new brother/sister.
Must the habit be blessed by the bishop or may any priest do it?
If there is a veil, cincture/belt, side rosary, are these also blessed at the same time?
If the new brother/sister is allowed to have more than one habit ( say two or three ) do they get blessed at the same time as well?
If the habit needs to be replaced many years down the road, is the new replacement habit required to be blessed, or is the blessing “continued” so to speak as when one replaces a worn out brown scapular with a new one?
