I attend mass at our cathedral and last weekend the coadjutor archbishop celebrated mass. At the end of mass, for the blessing, he said to bow our heads and then said something I don’t remember, and maybe 10 people knew the reply (there were hundreds present, I’m sure!) then he said another one, again, 10 people replied and then said “May almighty God bless you…”
I seem to recall this happening at least one other time when the archbishop celebrated mass and I have no idea what this blessing is and what the proper responses are.
I’m thinking I should ask Father (and if they would post it on the web site!) but thought I would ask here to see if any of you more versed in the blessings of the bishop would know.
