“The only way you can get Holy Water is to use the old rite of blessing it.”
— New Liturgical Movement
Priests who want Holy Water must use the real rite of blessing of Holy Water from the Rituale Romanum, or its Latin/English version The Roman Ritual. The old rite of blessing is also available in 1962 Parish Ritual (Collectio Rituuum).
Our bodies and souls are daily exposed to danger. As often as we use Holy Water, or it is used for us, we are given strength to do good and avoid evil. 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 this blessed water, by himself or someone else. Prayers ascend to Heaven each time you take Holy Water and sprinkle a drop, either for yourself or for another, whether he be present or absent; and God’s blessings descend upon both body and soul.
Effects of Holy Water
Some of the marvelous effects of the devout use of Holy Water are:
— Remission of venial sins
— Remission of temporal punishment due to sin
— Expulsion of demons
— Healing of the sick in body and soul
— Averting dangers, both spiritual and temporal
Did you know that when dangers threaten, such as fire, storms, sickness, discord, or other calamities, prayers joined with the devout use of holy water are highly efficacious?
Why This Tremendous Power?
Holy Water has its great power from the prayer of Holy Mother, the Church. The two tiny elements of salt and water used in the blessing, signify the glorious mission of Holy Water for the purpose of purification and preservation of body and soul.
Following is one of the blessings the priest makes to God, when he blesses water. It is great!
“Oh, 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 house or possessions of the faithful may be sprinkled with this water, may be freed from everything unclean and delivered from everything hurtful. Let everything that threatens the peace or safety of the dwellers therein be banished by the sprinkling of this water, so that the health which they seek by calling on Thy Holy Name may be guarded from all assault.”
Bless yourself daily with the Sign of the Cross
“By this holy water and by Your Precious Blood, wash away all my sins, O Lord. Amen.”
Bless Your Family
There is the ancient custom of a simple and private blessing which the parents themselves give their children by making the Sign of the Cross on their foreheads. While doing this, they usually say, “God bless you and protect you”, or “God bless and keep you”, or “God bless you and bring you back safe and sound”, or some similar phrase, as the occasion requires.
Those who are concerned about the absent members of their family can help them by praying for them, while making the Sign of the Cross with Holy Water, and begging God’s blessing upon them. No matter how distant be the person who is prayed for, the effects of the prayer of the Church in that tiny drop of Holy Water, reach them instantly!
Sanctify Your Home
Your home is the domestic Church and is in need of spiritual protection. You can sprinkle holy water in your home yourself, or have a priest formally bless your home.
Sprinkle with Holy Water your working place, your car, domestic animals, pets, garden.
St. Teresa of Avila used to say that she was ready to give her life for every drop of Holy Water, because the Blood of Christ was attached to it.
From long experience I have learned that there is nothing like holy water to put devils to flight and prevent them from coming back again. They also flee from the Cross, but return; so holy water must have great virtue. For my own part, whenever I take it, my soul feels a particular and most notable consolation.
St. Teresa of Avila
