Blessing Ceremony: Alessia Sofia

1 August 2009 3 Comments

This past week my son in law, Wayne, married to our first daughter Chiara, asked me if we would like to give their newborn Alessia (our first grandchild) a “Blessing”. Since he’s not a Christian, but he was raised in a Jewish family, we were somewhat surprised, but the Lord encouraged us to organize a simple ceremony and use it as a witness. So Patrizia and I put together the following Card that we read during the ceremony and left as a memory for Alessia and her parents (we pray that it will be a blessing for you all):



Alessia Sofia

Born on the 15 July 2009

“Welcome, Alessia! You have come to this earth at such a time as this, to bless us with love and grace! As you grow up and discover the world around you, remember that your life has a purpose and that your destiny will be fulfilled as your learn to love and care for those around you! Let this be a beacon to enlighten the path of your life: follow the direction of love and care, for then you will reach the harbor where happiness and fulfillment, and all that you desire, awaits you.”

“The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up his countenance on you and give you peace.” – (Numbers 6:24-26)

To parents and family:

“The halls of Heaven are filled with excitement that a new baby has come down to earth. The breath of the Father has filled the body conceived in the womb of the mother to bring forth a new living soul! All the angels are filled with joy that this child, Alessia Sofia, is born, for she is a child that will inherit both the lineages of the seed and faith of Abraham! These make a powerful merge and you are yet to see the promises that will be fulfilled through this child that has come to bless the world with love and grace! Oh, the depth of mysteries that will unfold through the adding of this life to the men and women of faith in the hall of fame! You shall see what it’s in store for her, if you believe God’s promises and hold to His Word!”

Children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is a reward.
As arrows in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is he that has his quiver full of them! – (Psalm 127:3-5)

Prayer for Alessia

God of Heaven, our Rock and our Redeemer, with gratitude for this gift of life we pray that Alessia will grow to joyfully accept her role in this world and make a difference in the lives that she will touch. Bless her, o Lord, with health and full years, happiness and strength. Bless us with understanding and wisdom, so that we may share in the forming of a life guided by the light of Your Word. May this child find favor before You, o Lord, and in the sight of all the people around her. Amen.

Grandparents’ Blessing

May your destiny be a glorious one, Alessia, “defender of mankind”.
May you live to see all of your good dreams and desires fulfilled.
May you bless your generations past and those yet to be.
May your heart be filled with intuition and your words with insight.
May songs of praise and gratitude ever be upon your tongue.
May your vision always be on a straight path before you.
May your eyes shine with the light of holy words.
May your face reflect the brightness of Heaven.
May your lips speak wisdom and your fulfillment be in righteousness, even as you ever yearn to hear the words of the Divine.
May you be always a blessing to those that you meet.

Your grandparents,

Renato and Patrizia

P.S.: Please, join us in prayer to bless this life, that she might grow “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52)

Thank you, and may you be blessed as you bless others.
