Bless and Be Blessed…
This small engraved Aqua Sacra (Latin. “holy water”) Crystal Holy Water Font in petite is a delicate reminder of the sacredness of the sacramental of blessed water as an original life element created and elevated by God. Its beauty and quality deeply signify the powerful and protecting value of holy water in every aspect of life, and encourages its regular use through its inviting design.
This beautiful font is meant to be used regularly in everyday living. Each font comes with a small accompanying funnel and complementary vial of previously blessed water. Pour this blessed water into your font, or feel free to seek out new Holy Water at a Catholic Church, especially a church that is meaningful to you or someone you love.
Holy water’s value throughout the history of Christianity—always in union with the faith of the one who uses it—for protection against evil and the request of Grace for deeper virtue in Christian living, could not possibly be overestimated. God’s ancient peoples washed and blessed in their rituals and feasts, at God’s covenant command. Today, in baptism, water is used sacramentally to cleanse away the old life and put on the new one in Christ. The passionate saint, Teresa of Avila, professed that she would die for one drop of holy water! Her conviction of its effectiveness was due to its power flowing from the precious blood of Jesus himself, based on the traditional saying that one can pray when blessing oneself with holy water: “By this holy water and by thy Precious Blood wash away all my sins, O Lord.”
The Aqua Sacra crystal holy water font is the perfect continuation of a rich Judeo-Christian tradition, particularly as a keepsake from special occasions such as baptism, first reconciliation, first communion, confirmation, wedding, anniversary, or death of a loved one. The accompanying vial can be filled in the particular font or dispensary located in the church where the special occasion took place, and then gifted with that water in memory of the special moment.
To use as a blessing:
Dab some of the water on a finger or use the applicator directly to make the sign of the cross on one’s forehead or the forehead of a loved one, or sprinkle where needed. Pray and bless in any moment or occasion, such as upon waking, when leaving the house, when blessing a child off to school or blessing after an injury or during illness. Bless on a birthday or special occasion, for bad dreams, for safety at home or away, for sports games or tests, or in time of simple struggle or great distress. Holy Water is also the most effective of the sacramentals against temptation. Bless with the confidence that prayers are heard by the Lord who bestows all good graces upon those who turn to Him. The beauty and sweetness of this Holy Water font will surely invite all into its sacramental aid.
Where Can I Find Holy Water?
A most poignant practice is to gather holy water from the fonts in a church where a person has been baptized, married, or had a special moment or event…to keep as a keepsake from that holy occasion!
Holy water is blessed by a priest for use in homes and ceremonies all the time. Every Catholic Church is meant to have a baptismal font or holy water dispensary on site or in the offices. If one is not available, contact a priest or church office to request a private blessing, or find out where the dispensary is located. Please feel welcome to do so! It will not be a strange request to them.
Also, many people love to gather holy water from the fonts of sacred, meaningful places, such as pilgrimage sites or famous churches around the world.
