Syntax: cast 'bless' <target>

Even a novice of spirit may call down a blessing on a person or object,
granting it divine favor. A person so blessed will gain a bonus to hitroll
and saves for a time. An object so blessed will be stripped of most
superficial evil taints, and will be considered as blessed from then on;
blessed objects gain a small measure of resistance to item-damaging spells
such as shatter. Furthermore, blessed weapons will strike with slightly
greater facility against demons, reducing the demon's ability to parry or
dodge against it.
