Last night my wife and I went to a frinds house and there were many couples there and we did some prayers and meditiations However, one of the husbands got up, read a blessing, took a fig leaf, dipped it into water from Fatima, and blessed us. Can he do that? Does he have authority? I thought only a priest can give a blessing with Holy Water? My wife and I were a litlle uncomfortable with this and we thought he went a liitle to far.
Any thougts out there?
