Lay blessing at Morning/Evening Prayer?


Can lay people give a blessing at the end of Morning or Evening Prayer if they are leading it?

--Buzz in Bennion


Yes. In the rubrics of the Liturgy of the Hours, a lay leader of prayer says, "May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life," as the leader signs her/himself with the Sign of the Cross."
