    Well, thatís some "Good Morning America" on a Sunday. ABCís morning-show website carried this Sunday sermon: "Holy Water May be Harmful to Your Health, Study Finds."

    (snip)

    Itís not surprising that scientists would find that the more hands that dip in the holy water, the more bacteria it might contain. During more infectious seasons of the year, Catholic parishes sometimes forego the ďsign of peaceĒ of shaking hands. But now ABC might scare away the faithful from their baptismal reminder as they enter.

    Dear ABC: most babies donít ingest water in a baptism. Most parishioners donít drink out of the holy-water fonts while blessing themselves.

    This comes from ABC, the network that routinely finds abortion and abortion-causing drugs aren't a health hazard...

    Well, in all fairness, sharing water that way is probably a means of spreading infections. The solution is chlorinated holy water.

    Holy water is usually just tap water that a priest blesses so it should already be chlorinated.

    It would be necessary to sanctify the chlorine and make it wholly holy chlorine, otherwise you would have to re-bless the water every time you would add chlorine and might get the water too holy after repeated blessings.
    If both substances were individually blessed they could be added to each other any number of times you wish with out diminishing or in creasing the holiness levels.

    I have given this much thought, it's raining here.

    Why is holy water such a problem for some people?

    Chlorine evaporates from the water within a couple of hrs.

    Is it raining holy water? Actually, if a priest blessed a cloud, I suppose that it would rain holy water. Something to keep in mind for a future vampire movie. In Judaism, the closest thing that we have is Seltzer, which is considered a sacrament in delis.

    Hardly the same health hazard as drinking from the communal chalice (shudder).

    I would suggest you not come in contact with Holy water, the chalice or crosses at close proximity, just to be on the safe side

    I take communion by intinction; my church is fine with doing it that way.
