It's not incorret and it certainly will not cause the OP any harm.
Non-Catholics are WELCOMED to receive a blessing at every parish in my diocese per my bishop. They are WELCOMED in just about ever other parish I have ever visited as well. Nothing wrong with it in the least so long as there is not a local prohibition which would be extremely rare in the USA.
It is incorrect. With all due respect, you may not be aware that the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments is the Holy See. The Holy See is the final word on these matters, not the bishop. The CDWDS acts in the name of the Holy Father. It acts in collaboration with him.
A bishop's authority is limited. He cannot add something to the Mass on his own authority. In fact, the way that something is added is if it receives the necessary 2/3 vote of the Latin Rite bishops and then is sent to Rome for the recognitio (as was the case with the translations). The CDWDS, while studying this matter, has stated that this should not be done and it has given five solid reasons against it.
This is beyond a local prohibition, since this comes from Rome.
We line up to receive Someone, not something. It is poor catechesis to think that a blessing will substitute for receiving Our Lord. Furthermore, the issue has nothing to do with inclusivity, since everyone will be receiving the blessing at the end of Mass, be that person Catholic, Protestant, atheist or whomever.
