Blessing the Sea Empty
PostSubject: Blessing the Sea   Blessing the Sea Icon_minitimeThu Dec 13, 2007 10:32 am

This custom is used to ensure that fishermen are blessed with good catches for the coming year. The blessing of the sea is still performed today in several places. One variation is for a decorated cross to be dipped into the sea three times, whereas another dictates for the cross to be thrown into the sea and later retrieved.
