Pedaling faith: New York City's "Blessing of the Bikes"

This annual gathering will take place this weekend at New York’s Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Divine.  You can find out more about it right here.

Earlier, I wrote about blessing houses.  So why not bikes? Check out the video below.

  1. We do a bicycle blessing at the parish where I work!

  2. Great idea ! This is a way many people recreate and make their living. Keep them safe Lord.

  3. I thought you meant a motorcycle blessing, like we have in our town.

    But bicycles are good, too. They have a big thing in Italy for that, and there’s that “Our Lady of the Bicycle” devotion in Girona or wherever it is — the one that’s next to the big Italian bike race road.
