Friday Wandering....

In this day with evil all around us, persecutions approaching, our faith under siege, how is draining Holy Water fonts helpful?

I know, I know..all this talk of pandemic..I was at a church yesterday whose fonts appeared to have been drained (either that or the Sacristan can't keep up with the demand) and I've heard of others.

Can we talk?

If faced with dying of the flu or being attacked by devils because of the absence of a Sacramental; I'll take the flu-thanks.

And I, as well.
Always an excuse to get rid of sacramentals as powerful as holy water, no?

At least in my parish, in lieu of the fonts, Father will be using the sprinkling rite on Sundays so it's not like we're completely without holy water. In any case, I still have some of my personal stock that I got at the Easter Vigil. Anyone for BYOHW?

Nancy: Good point. Now I wonder if I'll have to start carrying my own into church.

I am still trying to figure out how an airborne illness can be spread by use of holy water. Unless, of course, the folks at your parish are prone to lap up the holy water with their tongues.

Auntie: No. LOL! We still have the holy water fonts full at my parish. I was visiting a different parish the other day and I heard from someone else who thinks his fonts have been drained due to flu fears.

I think holy water fonts should be cleaned a bit more frequently than once a year. There were some nasty floating things in the Cathedral holy water fonts this weekend.

Maybe I will just start carrying my own. I have OCD and I hate putting my fingers in there , but the holy water removes venial sins and I don't want those anymore either.
