By this holy water
and by Your Precious Blood, wash away all my sins, O Lord.
St. Theresa of Avila
on holy water: "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 value."
Holy water is a means of spiritual wealth -- a sacramental that remits venial sin. The Church strongly urges its use, especially when dangers threaten. 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.
