However, the Church has always upheld the practice of non-ritual spontaneous blessings for individuals and groups of people. This practice provides the opportunity to invite the Lord into a person’s life so that they may receive the grace to follow Him more closely. In this sense, spontaneous blessings are meant for everyone, without precondition. Pope Francis reminds us that “a small step, in the midst of great human limitations, can be more pleasing to God than a life which appears outwardly in order but moves through the day without confronting great difficulties,” (43).
