I recently talked to one of my retired friends and he said about six months ago he had a heart attack in his house,and before his wife called 911 she sprinkled Holy Water on him(he survived heart attack)
The Catholic tradition is particularly beautiful and rich in meaning,and it’s also very early origin in the life of the Church. The primary meaning of this ancient custom is to signify the baptismal “washing of the soul” that takes place at baptism. As St.Paul explains: “He saved us through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the holy Spirit, whom he richly poured out on us through Jesus Christ our savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:5-7.
Each time a Catholic enters a church and dips his hand into the holy water font to bless himself with the sign of the cross ,he is renewing his baptismal covenant with GodMay 29, 2006 at 3:29 pm #6307

God moves in mysterious ways. Anyway, even if we think that we know what’s best for us, God knows better.May 31, 2006 at 12:15 am #6367
