Parents: Commentary on Holy water by Fr. William P. Saunders

“Lord, God Almighty, creator of all life, of body and soul, we ask you to bless this water: as we use it in faith forgive our sins and save us from all illness and the power of evil. Lord, in your mercy give us living water, always springing up as a fountain of salvation; free us, body and soul, from every danger, and admit us to your presence in purity of heart.”

-the Prayer of Blessing of Water in the Sacramentary

(In class,  we did a Works of Mercy relay race. Each team member took a Saint Patrick Bottled water and wrote one of the works of mercy down on the board. Then he /she would pass the bottle on to his/her teammate to write a work of mercy on the board. this would continue until all 7 of the works of mercy were on the board.)
