I Reckon My Pastor Thought I Needed Cleansing Before Easter

Because my eldest son, and I, took the holy water carrying effects of this baby full to the face.

For bringing an industrial size blessing, only natural fibers will suffice.


That sucker can carry 10-20 times it’s weight in water, let me tell you. And it can part the crowds like nobody’s business.

I don’t know how many palm fronds were blessed with it, yesterday, but I am very glad my wife had that ever present pack of tissues at the ready in her purse.

    One of the priests in our parish used to visibly LOVE throwing the holy water as far and wide as possible. Based on his arm, I’m guessing he played baseball in high school or college. My toddler was also very intrigued by the whole “water throwing” thing. I found him the next day dipping the toilet bowl brush into the toilet and “blessing” the bathroom with great enthusiasm… Ick!
