Czech Republic: Blessing at a Catholic Church
By Martin Masner, FFWPU Czech Republic
We were able to bless 10 couples during a Sunday mass at a Philippino-Czech church in Prague on January 6 2019. Together with the priest, we held this event during a normal Sunday mass – after the Eucharist. We offered the holy wine, the priest blessed them with his holy water, and they exchanged rings, like the Catholics do, and I was able to offer a blessing prayer in the end. After the Blessing, the priest continued his mass and concluded in the usual Catholic way. For us it was interesting, because for the first time, we were able to conduct a Blessing event in such a way that would have seemed impossible before.
