Hello. Today after Mass, I went up to my pastor and asked him to bless my Rosary. He just made the sign of the cross over it, and didn’t say anything. Is the Rosary validly blessed, or do I need to find another priest and get it re-blessed?
God bless you for answering my question. :blessyou:
As to your question, some priests do not know what they’re doing. For example, there has been some cases of priests not giving valid absolution in confession due to invalid form. They weren’t saying “I absolve you.”
An issue would seem to be a possible relationship between seeing such questions posted here, and engendering concern among the laity about questions of “valid form,” whether in sacraments or sacramentals, such doubts not normally being something “on the radar” of the a average layperson.
