Is the blessing of a Bishop greater than that of a priest


What about Papal blessing? is it greater than all others blessings?


Well, you can gain, at certain times, plenary indulgences from your bishop and the Pope.


A Blessing is a Blessing whether from a Priest, Bishop, Archbishop, Cardinal, or a Pope.
However, under certain circumstances,and only if the receipient is in a State of Grace, a Plenary Indulgence may be given with a Blessing from a Bishop, Archbishop, Cardinal or from the Pope.


Yes and yes. Tis the blessing of a Bishop…and then tis the blessing of the Pope…


But in any case it is a blessing :slight_smile:
