If I have a sacramental, would touching it to a first or second class relic (thus making it a third class relic) be good enough for it to be blessed? Or do I really need to get them blessed?
I'm asking because I'm making a lot of prayer rope bracelets for myself and I'm too shy to ask a priest for a blessing all the time. I have a second class Holy Face relic I can touch them to. Will that do?
It's not actually a sacramental till it's blessed, and if you only touch it to the relic it will just be a relic sacramental, not the sacramental it's intended to be. For instance, I can touch my St. Dymphna medal to a relic of hers and make it into one, but unless I get it blessed by a priest it won't function as a silent prayer which is what kind of sacramental it technically is.
