blessed +‎ -ness

Noun[edit]

blessedness (uncountable)

  1. The state or condition of being blessed, holy.
    • 1594, William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 1
      Thrice-blessed they that master so their blood
      To undergo such maiden pilgrimage:
      But earthlier happy is the rose distill'd
      Than that which, withering on the virgin thorn,
      Grows, lives, and dies, in single blessedness.
