During the Divine Praises we bless the Holy Name of Jesus.
In some context we seem to use “Blesséd” and in others “Blessed”.
Is there a grammatical difference?
Is there a difference in meaning?
If during the Divine Praises one priest says “Blest be God” and another says “Blesséd be God”, are they saying different things? Which best translates “Benedictus Deus. Benedictum Nomen Sanctum eius. … etc.)?
