It’s blessed by a priest, sometimes locally but it’s also sold bottled if I’m not mistaken.

I’m good friends with a family who own and operate the oldest Greek restaurant in town. Fun people, love them, just don’t get them PO’ed about something, wow, very dramatic, lol.

I’m especially fond of the mama, who came over from Greece, still a thick accent, she hates communists, helped her father fight them, staunch conservative, devoutly religious. Greek Orthodox, something of a mystic in her understanding.

I was building a new house, she insisted on sprinkling holy water on the foundation so I’d have a safe, happy home blessed by our Creator. I couldn’t possibly have turned her down, even though I don’t put faith in such things. Her love and her intentions, I did value though. It still makes me smile to remember it.

She’s in her eighties now and her health is failing. Her time here is drawing to a close, and that saddens me. But, this southern evangelical is as certain of life everlasting for her as I’ve ever been for anyone.

Is baptism done with just regular old water? Or do you two not believe in Baptism?
