Blessed is actually two differed words. The distinguishment of the word is
found in how it is sounded out as it is spelled the same.
First word - Blessed (one syllable) - past tense of bless. (Okay,
technically, it is the inflected form of bless, but nobody really cares and
I hate the fact that I learned and remember that from college.)
The Father blessed the congregation.
Seconed word - Blessed (two syllables) - adj. held in reference - venerated
Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
The blessed trinity....
The blessed sacrament...
The blessed saints...
The blessed moose...
