The blessing of devotional items is an occasion to praise God for the gifts that a given thing reminds us of. It is also a request that the object that is blessed always remind us of God and His goodness, and that God take care of man. Therefore, blessing a thing does not mean sacrificing it, nor is it bestowing it with some supernatural power that would protect a person from misfortune. This activity reveals man's respectful and humble attitude towards the world entrusted to him by the Creator.
The blessing of devotional items takes place during each Holy Mass held in the upper basilica.
