How does water become holy water? Do they get the water from somewhere special or is it tap water? What makes it holy?
More specifically, Holy Water is water that has been blessed by those with authority to bless (ie: a priest, bishop, cardinal, etc...) What sets it apart is that is is now intended to be an "instrument of God." For all purposes it is still water. It will still freeze and boil (although, there have been some reported cases of miracles), it will still put out fires, and it is still drinkable. However, the purpose comes in the intent of the water.
God has a sense of humor, I mean really, where do people come up with this stuff? All we know about God is that he slept, woke up, and was always in peoples business. I have a sense of humor too, lol. I just thought u were one of those atheist that thinks its funny to poke fun at the Lord. Thanks for the verification. ps. just bc ur catolic doesn't make you a believer, i know plenty who were born into it but don't believe.
In Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Eastern Catholic, Old Catholic, Anglo-Catholic, and some other Churches, holy water is water which has been blessed by a priest, bishop, or deacon for the purpose of baptism or for the blessing of persons, places or things.
Aside from other substances that may be added to the water as it is blessed, holy water is indistinguishable from ordinary water.[

LOL it is plain ole tap water that is prayed over. My neighbor and I decided to digest a small portion and found our tongues fizzing. So they must add something else to it, then again she is a bit eviiil
i think you shouldn't joke with holy water. it is blessed. i think if you have your belief and you don't believe in religions that have this concept, the least you can do is respect it
It's water, thats got 'hi-level prayer' on it. But it's still water.
If you drink it. You'll still have to pee later...
I'm a Christian, married to a Catholic. I believe God has a sense of humor. But I'm sorry if I offended.
As the old joke goes, it's plain old water with the Hell boiled out of it. rimshot
It's prayed over! It starts out regular water!
except on vampires it burns vampires lol
personally, i dont believe in it
