Papal Blessings

A Papal Blessing is a special blessing offered by the Holy Father for special occasions such as the celebration of the sacraments (Baptism, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, etc.), anniversaries, and birthdays. The Vatican is requesting that the faithful order blessings directly from the Holy Father’s Alms-giving office. If you are interested in obtaining a blessing, please visit
