Inherited Rings

Q & A with Fr Job:
Question: How should I act with a ring that was taken from my departed grandmother and given to me in memory? Should it be blessed? Does wearing it involve anything negative?

Answer: The conveying of a marriage ring from older generations to younger generations fully corresponds to tradition. There is nothing negative in the ring. You can bless it with holy water, reading the prayer of blessing of all things (in the Prayer Book).
