The phrase, 'the memory of the just is blessed,' has its origins in the Judeo-Christian Bible (Proverbs x:7) and refers to the positive influence of good people who are no longer alive. Though deceased, such good-character persons can provide assistance to those who are living, encouraging them to do what is right, to be faithful, to live well -- and this continuing positive influence can (and should) be seen as 'blessed,' that is, as something for which to be thankful, perhaps even as a gift given from above.
