THE PRIESTLY BLESSING
Msgr. Stephen Rossetti forges a renewed theology of priestly blessing, encouraging his brother priests to embrace the habit of blessing people, objects, and events. In this provacative and inspirational book he shows how the blessing is integral to the identity of priests and crucial to the spiritual wellbeing of all the faithful. Msgr. Rossetti traces the history of blessing in both the Old and New Testaments. He also explores the various types of blessing, such as praise of God, the invocation of special benefit from God, and being consecrated to God. Paperback. 192 pages.
