Q : 
Can I get a priest to bless a portrait of my loved one? But he is not a Christian and unwilling to know about Christian faith. I hope the Holy Spirit will enlighten him. Thank you.

Fr. Francis : 

Of course you can ask a priest to bless your non-Catholic loved one, and there is no need to bring a portrait. We can send up prayers for those not present, and invoke God’s blessings upon those not present as well. If you want to, you can also stand in proxy for your loved one so as the priest prays with you, he is praying over your loved one who is not present.
