Religious Signs


Here, human beings are the subject of the verb "to bless", and God is the object. In this context phrases such as "blessed are you, o Lord", or "we bless you, Lord" are used. Bless and blessing then are the response of people to God's goodness to them. In this context "bless" indicates a response of gratitude which leads the believer into the adoration of and commitment to God. The practice of blessing God originates in the Old Testament, and occurs frequently in the rituals of the Judaism and in the liturgies of the Catholic church.
