So the Basilica blessed your bike... Is it holy?


This weekend, the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis did their first blessing of the bikes. Bike owners gathered outside the church to have their bikes blessed by the church and sprinkled with holy water.

So you're probably feeling pretty mighty riding that blessed bike around town. Perhaps a little invincible? Don't get your hopes up. That two-wheeled mode of transportation ain't holy.

WCCO's Jason DeRusha looked into the blessing of objects to find out what the deal is. If we're blessing pets and bikes, what's next?
