Im joking of course as these days everyone says swine what. No one notices or cares about swine flu anymore, so when are they going to put the holy water back in churches?!?! I recently learned of something St Teresa of Avila wrote and it makes me wonder how this all fits together. Here is what she said: “From long experience I have learned that there is nothing like holy water to put devils to flight and prevent them from coming back again.
They also flee from the cross, but return; so holy water must have great value. For my own part, whenever I take it, my soul feels a particular and most notable consolation.”
Bold mine. Interesting to say the least and I think it is safe to say that if holy water puts devils to flight then what happens without it? What is happening to people and churches spiritually who don’t have it? I don’t have the exact quote but Teresa also said something like the devil enters through small cracks. I think this absence of holy water since May of 2009 might be a crack or could become one and it must be fixed as soon as possible.
