Every Christian home should always have a supply of Holy Water. We realize now as we shall after death, the many benefits which may be derived from Holy Water. We would use it more frequently, and with greater faith and reverence. Holy Water has the great power and efficacy from the prayers at the Church. Following are some of the petitions the priest makes to God when he blesses water: "O God ... grant that this creature of Thine (water) may be endowed with divine grace to drive away devils and to cast out diseases, that whatever in the houses or possessions of the faithful may be sprinkled by this water, so that health which they seek by calling upon thy Holy Name may be guarded from all assaults.
"The devil hates Holy Water because of its power over him. He cannot long abide in a place or near a person that is often sprinkled with blessed water. Holy Water, sprinkled with faith and piety, can move the Sacred Heart to bless your loved ones, present or absent, and protect them from all harm of soul and body. When worry and fear take possession of you, give your dear ones the benefit of the Church prayer. Only in Purgatory can one understand how ardently a poor soul longs for Holy Water, if we desire to make a host or intercessors for ourselves, let us forget them at the Holy Water font. The holy souls nearest to Heaven may need the sprinkling of only one drop to release them.
HOLY WATER - A means of spiritual wealth: Holy Water is a sacramental that remits venial sin.Because of the blessing attached to it. Holy Church strongly urges its use upon her children, especially when dangers threaten, such as fire, storm, sickness, discard and other calamities.After all the people had been baptized, Jesus also was baptized. While he was praying, Heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit came down upon him and a bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from Heaven, "You are my own dear Son. I am pleased with you."
(Luke 3 / 21-22).
