I’m creating a custom necklace for a friend of mine, whose full-term second baby was stillborn. She also asked that I create a matching bracelet for her 5-year-old firstborn daughter.
My question: should I have these pieces blessed? My friend isn’t “religious at all” (her words), but I’d really like my priest to bless the necklace and bracelet–if for nothing else, to help impart comfort to my friend and her daughter.
But would doing so be under-handed on my part? I would definitely not want to do that, as that SO wouldn’t be my intention at all.
I trust your opinions. Would you have the necklace and bracelet blessed anyway?
