Blessing (祝福? or しゅくふく, Shukufuku?, lit. Bless), also known as Lifegiver, Divine Favor, and Benediction, is a recurring ability in the series. It is an ability that helps the user's party in a beneficial way, either by restoring HP, MP, or statuses.

There is also a Holy Magic known as "Blessing" (ブレッシング, Buresshingu?) in Bravely Second: End Layer, but it is not the same ability.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A blessing is the infusion of something with holiness, spiritual redemption, divine will, or one's hope or approval.

It is also called "Benediction." "Benediction" comes from Latin and means "to speak well". It is a short invocation for divine help, blessing and guidance, usually at the end of worship service.
