Blessing wedding rings

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Got a call (she left a message) from the mom of a groom asking me to bless the rings for her son and fiance who are getting civilly married.

Interesting that the mom of the groom called rather than the groom (or bride). My first thought is that rings are “appropriately blessed” in the Catholic Marriage Rite

What do you think?

Thank you. Blessings and Peace


A: Yeah, I’d probably tell her to ask the groom to contact me directly. I’d want to have a conversation with him in person about the background to this case, and to see if there was something more I could do besides bless the rings.
