Always ask for a Blessing from a Priest

Receiving a blessing from a priest, is to receive a blessing from Jesus who imparts His blessing through His ministers. If you are open to receiving Jesus into your life and desire holiness, through the priestly blessing, Jesus will increase your holiness by showering you with graces.
