Bless Your Children

Posted on January 16, 2024 by Published by

Parents should bless their children, every day. The traditional way of doing this is for the children to kneel and for the parent to either place his hands on the child’s head and/or trace a Cross on the child’s forehead while saying:“

May the blessing of Almighty God, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, come down on you and remain with you forever. Amen!”

St. Ambrose wrote of this practice: “You may not be rich; you may be unable to bequeath any great possessions to your children; but one thing you can give them; the heritage of your blessing. And it is better to be blessed than to be rich.”
