holy water
Question from Anonymous on 8/7/2008:

How is holy water made holy? I have had priests simply bless tap water. Would this water be holy or just blessed? Thank you so much.
Answer by David Gregson on 8/26/2008:

Any water blessed by a priest is holy water, but a distinction may be made between ordinary holy water, baptismal water (water blessed for baptism), and Easter water (specially blessed for use during paschal time).

  1. A priest is a man and was born into sin like everyone else, he is not God, he can't make anything holy.
