I had my brown scapular and medal of St. Benedict blessed by a Salesian priest. There was no Carmelite/Benedictine around my area, so he was the only one I could go to. He only said a short two sentenced prayer: “Bless these sacramentals to make them holy and help the wearer be free from sin” or something like that.
My question is, is it still valid? I read on numerous websites that they need to be blessed by their respective orders with the proper rite of blessing. Since no such rite was used, does this mean I do not receive the full graces of the sacramentals?
Thanks, and God bless to all.
