Motorcycle Mass and Blessing of the Bikes Day
Motorcycle Mass and Blessing of the Bikes Day is observed next on Sunday, May 7th, 2023 (155 days from today).
The first Sunday in May since 1999 is chosen as Motorcycle Mass and Blessing of the Bikes Day every year.
For some people, stepping out onto the open road with their spin is a spiritual experience. On Motorcycle Festival & Bicycle Blessing Day, this connection deepens as riders gather in a special block to bless their bikes. Coincidentally, motorcyclists even have their own Patronus, Saint Columbanus of Bobbio. Saint Columbanus from 540-615 AD was known to be rugged, handsome, and irresistible to women; Not to mention having a taste for beer. In fact, it is said that one of his miracles was to make more bread and beer for a gathering. It seems a good match of Patron Saint.
For every celebration, you can refer two great bike blessing prayers as below:
"May God in heaven bless your prayers and give you a dreamful bike as well as bless them. May God bless you’re going out and coming in; May the Lord always be with you both at home and on the road. May He be with you when you start your journeys: May He fill your lives happily with many good blessings; May He keep you safe on your rides. May His mercy, grace and love shine in all your ways. In Christ Name, Amen"
"May God bless you and keep you safe on this machine. May you meet the Risen Lord on your journey in the freedom of the open road, in harmony with other cyclists and in every person you meet. May the Lord always be with you both at home and on the road. May he always accompany you when you start your business on your journey; May He bless your life with His many blessings; May all your travels be safe. May His mercy, grace and love shine in all your ways. Father, Son and Holy Spirit."
