Question will a priest come to my moms house to bless, my dad passed away after a sickness we were there when he took his last breath. we are catholic, she is more than I always reading her bible. I just feel that a blessing might help her, am I wrong? should I ask her local priest if he could do this, and would I be wrong or right in asking?
Answer House blessings by the priest or the deacon are common in some parts of the country and the world. I'm sure your pastor or a deacon would come to your house and do a blessing if asked. But you should make sure your mother is ok with all this. What you are asking, of course, is that an official minister of the church ( an ordained person) give a blessing from the church (the blessing of a deacon is just as good as that of the pope -- both speak in the name of the church). Hope this helps.
Most any question about Catholic teachings, the structure of the Church, issues related to Catholic teachings on sexuality and marriage; I also know a lot about biblical foundations for Catholic teaching, and apologetics. As a scientist and a deacon, I am conversant with the dialogue between science and religion.
