On the Pastoral Meaning of Blessings
Declaration of the Dicastery
for the Doctrine of the Faith
“The great blessing of God is Jesus Christ. He is the great gift of God, his own Son.
He is a blessing for all humanity, a blessing that has saved us all. He is the Eternal
Word, with whom the Father blessed us ‘while we were still sinners’ (Rom. 5:8),
as St. Paul says. He is the Word made flesh, offered for us on the cross FS 1
I. The Blessing in the Sacrament of Marriage
Marriage …. is the “exclusive, stable, and indissoluble union between a man
and a woman, naturally open to the generation of children” … only in this context
that sexual relations find their natural, proper, and fully human meaning FS 4
the Responsum of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,
which states that the Church does not have the power to
impart blessings on unions of persons of the same sex FS 5
the Rite of the Sacrament of Marriage, this concerns not just any blessing but a
gesture reserved to the ordained minister. In this case, the blessing given by the
ordained minister is tied directly to the specific union of a man and a woman,
who establish an exclusive and indissoluble covenant by their consent FS 6
II. The Meaning of the Various Blessings
Blessings …lead us to grasp God’s presence in all the events of life
and remind us that, even in the use of created things, human beings
are invited to seek God, to love him, and to serve him faithfully. FS 8
For this reason, blessings have as their recipients: people; objects of worship
and devotion; sacred images; places of life, of work, and suffering; the fruits
of the earth and human toil; and all created realities that refer back
to the Creator, praising and blessing him by their beauty FS 8
The Liturgical Meaning of the Rites of Blessing
blessings are celebrated by virtue of faith and are ordered
to the praise of God and the spiritual benefit of his people FS 10
by an ancient tradition, the formulas of blessing are primarily
aimed at giving glory to God for his gifts, asking for his favors,
and restraining the power of evil in the world FS 10
those who invoke God’s blessing through the Church are invited to “strengthen
their dispositions through faith, for which all things are possible” and to trust
in “the love that urges the observance of God’s commandments FS 10
“there is always and everywhere an opportunity
to praise God through Christ, in the Holy Spirit,”
there is also a care to do so with “things, places,
or circumstances that do not contradict
the law or the spirit of the Gospel . FS 10
when a blessing is invoked on certain human
relationships by a special liturgical rite, it is
necessary that what is blessed corresponds
with God’s designs written in creation and
Fully revealed by Christ the Lord. FS 11
The Church has always considered only those sexual relations that are lived out
within marriage to be morally licit, the Church does not have the power to confer its
liturgical blessing when that would somehow offer a form of moral legitimacy to a
union that presumes to be a marriage or to an extra-marital sexual practice.FS 11
the unconditional power of God’s love …
forms the basis for the gesture of blessing FS 12
Blessings in Sacred Scripture - - Descending character -
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face
shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his
countenance upon you and give you peace” (Num. 6:24-26)
Blessing in this sense (ascending character) amounts to praising,
celebrating, and thanking God for his mercy and his faithfulness, for the
wonders he has created, and for all that has come about by his will: “Bless
the Lord, my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name (Ps 103,1)
Melchizedek, King of Salem, blesses Abram (cf. Gen. 14:19);
Rebekah is blessed by family members just before
she becomes the bride of Isaac (cf. Gen. 24:60),
Isaac blesses his son, Jacob (cf. Gen. 27:27).
Jacob blesses Pharaoh (cf. Gen. 47:10), his own grandsons, Ephraim
and Manasseh (cf. Gen. 48:20), and his twelve sons (cf. Gen. 49:28).
Moses and Aaron bless the community (cf. Ex. 39:43; Lev. 9:22).
The blessing found in the New Testament retains essentially the same
meaning it had in the Old Testament. We find the divine gift that
“descends,” the human thanksgiving that “ascends,” and the
blessing imparted by man that “extends” toward others.FS17
1 - Zechariah, having regained the use of speech,
blesses the Lord for his wondrous works (cf. Lk. 1:64).
2 - Simeon, while holding the newborn Jesus in his arms, blesses God
for granting him the grace to contemplate the saving Messiah, and
then blesses the child’s parents, Mary and Joseph (cf. Lk. 2:34).
3 - Jesus blesses the Father in the famous hymn of praise and exultation he
addressed to him: “I praise you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth” (Mt. 11:25)
Jesus gave a final
blessing reserved
for the Eleven,
shortly before he
ascends to the
Father: “And
lifting up his
hands he blessed
them. While he
blessed them, he
parted from them
and was carried
up into heaven”
(Lk. 24:50-51)
A Theological-
Pastoral
Understanding
of Blessings
One who asks for a
blessing shows himself
to be in need of God’s
saving presence in his
life and one who asks for
a blessing from the
Church recognizes the
latter as a sacrament of
the salvation that God
offers FS 20
“when one asks for a blessing, one is expressing a petition for God’s assistance,
a plea to live better, and confidence in a Father who can help us live better.” FS 21
the blessing possesses a special power, which accompanies those who receive it
throughout their lives, and disposes man’s heart to be changed by God FS 27
III. Blessings of Couples in Irregular Situations
and of Couples of the Same Sex - recognizing themselves to be destitute and in need
of his help—do not claim a legitimation of their own status, … but who beg that all
that is true, good, and humanly valid in their lives and their relationships be
enriched, healed, and elevated by the presence of the Holy Spirit FS 31
the grace of God works in the lives of those who do not claim to be
righteous but who acknowledge themselves humbly as sinners FS 32
“Almighty ever-living God, who in the abundance of
your kindness surpass the merits and the desires of
those who entreat you, pour out your mercy upon us
to pardon what conscience dreads and to give
what prayer does not dare to ask” FS 34
one should neither provide for, nor promote a ritual for
the blessings of couples in an irregular situation FS 38
IV. The Church is the Sacrament of God’s Infinite Love
The Church continues to lift up those prayers and supplications that Christ
himself—with loud cries and tears—offered in his earthly life (cf. Heb. 5:7),
and which enjoy a special efficacy for this reason. In this way, “not only by
charity, example, and works of penance, but also by prayer does the ecclesial
community exercise a true maternal function in bringing souls to Christ FS 42

Fiducia Supplicans – the pastoral meaning of blessings.pptx

  • 1. Fiducia Supplicans On the Pastoral Meaning of Blessings
  • 2. Declaration of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith
  • 3. “The great blessing of God is Jesus Christ. He is the great gift of God, his own Son. He is a blessing for all humanity, a blessing that has saved us all. He is the Eternal Word, with whom the Father blessed us ‘while we were still sinners’ (Rom. 5:8), as St. Paul says. He is the Word made flesh, offered for us on the cross FS 1
  • 4. I. The Blessing in the Sacrament of Marriage Marriage …. is the “exclusive, stable, and indissoluble union between a man and a woman, naturally open to the generation of children” … only in this context that sexual relations find their natural, proper, and fully human meaning FS 4
  • 5. the Responsum of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which states that the Church does not have the power to impart blessings on unions of persons of the same sex FS 5
  • 6. the Rite of the Sacrament of Marriage, this concerns not just any blessing but a gesture reserved to the ordained minister. In this case, the blessing given by the ordained minister is tied directly to the specific union of a man and a woman, who establish an exclusive and indissoluble covenant by their consent FS 6
  • 7. II. The Meaning of the Various Blessings Blessings …lead us to grasp God’s presence in all the events of life and remind us that, even in the use of created things, human beings are invited to seek God, to love him, and to serve him faithfully. FS 8
  • 8. For this reason, blessings have as their recipients: people; objects of worship and devotion; sacred images; places of life, of work, and suffering; the fruits of the earth and human toil; and all created realities that refer back to the Creator, praising and blessing him by their beauty FS 8
  • 9. The Liturgical Meaning of the Rites of Blessing blessings are celebrated by virtue of faith and are ordered to the praise of God and the spiritual benefit of his people FS 10
  • 10. by an ancient tradition, the formulas of blessing are primarily aimed at giving glory to God for his gifts, asking for his favors, and restraining the power of evil in the world FS 10
  • 11. those who invoke God’s blessing through the Church are invited to “strengthen their dispositions through faith, for which all things are possible” and to trust in “the love that urges the observance of God’s commandments FS 10
  • 12. “there is always and everywhere an opportunity to praise God through Christ, in the Holy Spirit,” there is also a care to do so with “things, places, or circumstances that do not contradict the law or the spirit of the Gospel . FS 10
  • 13. when a blessing is invoked on certain human relationships by a special liturgical rite, it is necessary that what is blessed corresponds with God’s designs written in creation and Fully revealed by Christ the Lord. FS 11
  • 14. The Church has always considered only those sexual relations that are lived out within marriage to be morally licit, the Church does not have the power to confer its liturgical blessing when that would somehow offer a form of moral legitimacy to a union that presumes to be a marriage or to an extra-marital sexual practice.FS 11
  • 15. the unconditional power of God’s love … forms the basis for the gesture of blessing FS 12
  • 16. Blessings in Sacred Scripture - - Descending character - May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace” (Num. 6:24-26)
  • 17. Blessing in this sense (ascending character) amounts to praising, celebrating, and thanking God for his mercy and his faithfulness, for the wonders he has created, and for all that has come about by his will: “Bless the Lord, my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name (Ps 103,1)
  • 18. Melchizedek, King of Salem, blesses Abram (cf. Gen. 14:19);
  • 19. Rebekah is blessed by family members just before she becomes the bride of Isaac (cf. Gen. 24:60),
  • 20. Isaac blesses his son, Jacob (cf. Gen. 27:27).
  • 21. Jacob blesses Pharaoh (cf. Gen. 47:10), his own grandsons, Ephraim and Manasseh (cf. Gen. 48:20), and his twelve sons (cf. Gen. 49:28).
  • 22. Moses and Aaron bless the community (cf. Ex. 39:43; Lev. 9:22).
  • 23. The blessing found in the New Testament retains essentially the same meaning it had in the Old Testament. We find the divine gift that “descends,” the human thanksgiving that “ascends,” and the blessing imparted by man that “extends” toward others.FS17
  • 24. 1 - Zechariah, having regained the use of speech, blesses the Lord for his wondrous works (cf. Lk. 1:64).
  • 25. 2 - Simeon, while holding the newborn Jesus in his arms, blesses God for granting him the grace to contemplate the saving Messiah, and then blesses the child’s parents, Mary and Joseph (cf. Lk. 2:34).
  • 26. 3 - Jesus blesses the Father in the famous hymn of praise and exultation he addressed to him: “I praise you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth” (Mt. 11:25)
  • 27. Jesus gave a final blessing reserved for the Eleven, shortly before he ascends to the Father: “And lifting up his hands he blessed them. While he blessed them, he parted from them and was carried up into heaven” (Lk. 24:50-51)
  • 28. A Theological- Pastoral Understanding of Blessings One who asks for a blessing shows himself to be in need of God’s saving presence in his life and one who asks for a blessing from the Church recognizes the latter as a sacrament of the salvation that God offers FS 20
  • 29. “when one asks for a blessing, one is expressing a petition for God’s assistance, a plea to live better, and confidence in a Father who can help us live better.” FS 21
  • 30. the blessing possesses a special power, which accompanies those who receive it throughout their lives, and disposes man’s heart to be changed by God FS 27
  • 31. III. Blessings of Couples in Irregular Situations and of Couples of the Same Sex - recognizing themselves to be destitute and in need of his help—do not claim a legitimation of their own status, … but who beg that all that is true, good, and humanly valid in their lives and their relationships be enriched, healed, and elevated by the presence of the Holy Spirit FS 31
  • 32. the grace of God works in the lives of those who do not claim to be righteous but who acknowledge themselves humbly as sinners FS 32
  • 33. “Almighty ever-living God, who in the abundance of your kindness surpass the merits and the desires of those who entreat you, pour out your mercy upon us to pardon what conscience dreads and to give what prayer does not dare to ask” FS 34
  • 34. one should neither provide for, nor promote a ritual for the blessings of couples in an irregular situation FS 38
  • 35. IV. The Church is the Sacrament of God’s Infinite Love The Church continues to lift up those prayers and supplications that Christ himself—with loud cries and tears—offered in his earthly life (cf. Heb. 5:7), and which enjoy a special efficacy for this reason. In this way, “not only by charity, example, and works of penance, but also by prayer does the ecclesial community exercise a true maternal function in bringing souls to Christ FS 42
