Holy Water

The action of crossing ourselves with a few drops of blessed water recalls our rebirth at Baptism, the regeneration to the new life of a son of God and of purification from sin. The sign of the cross reminds us that Jesus was the Man who took upon himself the sufferings of his brothers and sisters by offering up himself.

Having received baptism,
the Christian becomes like perfumed wine,
and this is worked by faith.
