Blessed Cross

Blessed Cross
Question from Brian on 8/11/2008:

I wear a cross that was my father's until he passed away about 5 years ago. I know that it was blessed for him, because my mother sent me to the priest when she bought it for him to have it blessed. Now, when he passed it came to me. Does the Cross have to be re-blessed because the ownership changed? I've been wearing it for 5 years and didn't bother having it blessed since I took it myself prior to my father's passing.

Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 8/20/2008:

No, religious articles that are given as gifts do not need to be reblessed.
