Make a Container
to Store your Holy Water


One can make one's own decorative bottle for storing holy water. Get a nicely-shaped bottle --preferably one with a flat surface on one side -- with a gold-colored or silver-colored screw on top, such as the bottles below:

 


Soak the bottle in hot water with a little alcohol to totally remove all paper and sticky glue, and let it dry thoroughly. Make a stencil of the words "Holy Water" (or a stencil of an appropriate symbol, such as the fish, or a symbol of Baptism), and use a chemical etching agent to etch the glass with the words of symbols you've chosen.
 
Chemical etching agents can be found here ( will open in a new browser window) and in craft stores such as Michael's. Follow carefully the instructions that come with your etching agent!

Loving readings on the importance of water in the Christian faith.

Seriously, my atheistic brother was coming to stay with us and I sprinkled Holy Water all around the room he would be staying in. We had a wonderful time with no arguments about religion and he's come back 2 more times to voluntarily help us put in an irrigation system.

I think Catholic and Orthodox churches should have those misting machines in the summertime to cool down passersby but also to douse them with Holy Water!!!!
