It’s a diet problem. You got a beer belly cause you drank beer instead of blood. Clumsiness was also caused by not drinking enough blood. Needed that iron for your vampiric anemia.

This has nothing to do with the Herman Cain award. Catholic Churches have little bowls of holy water in the back so that people can dip their fingers in them and do the sign of the cross. This looks like a more sanitary way to do it and seems like a good idea in the era of Covid. It’s not a replacement for hand sanitizer if that’s what you think it is.

25

u/Sew_chef Aug 16 '22

Also, contaminated holy water has been known to spread diseases because people are nasty and just dip their filthy hands in the communal bowl. This should be how they do it from now on anyways.

This is a shitpost - a joke. And I think it goes hand-in-dirty-hand with all the HCAs who say "I don't need a vaccine to protect me - I'm washed in the blood."

It's relevant because it looks like they have filled a hand sanitizer dispenser with holy water. The implication is "You don't need to sanitize your hands - the holy water will protect you."

u/seenorimagined Team Mix & Match Aug 16 '22 edited Aug 17 '22

People using holy water to try to cure medical problems has a very HCA feel. There's a genetic condition that runs in my family which causes poor vision and total color blindness from birth. It's very rare. My grandparents, being good Catholics, had 12 children. They were both carriers for the genetic disorder, and 4 of their kids developed it, one being my mother. She said that a couple of her aunts went to Rome, brought back holy water from the Vatican, and gave it to her and her siblings to put in their eyes to cure them.

u/Puzzled-Barnacle2771 Aug 17 '22

Catholics can be superstitious but I feel like most of them go to the doctor and take medication other than birth control. And the pope supports Covid vaccines. My friend works at a diocese office taking phone calls and although people did call asking for a religious exemption for work and school, they didn’t give them.

u/TpalVulcan Aug 16 '22

Oh common

most churches that i saw have/had a proper hand sanitizer dispenser and then moved the holy water to a safer method of distribution.

Like you put on your mask, walk in, use the hand sanitizer, get the holy water in a safe and clean way, bless yourself and sit down.

Churches that put some thought into how to dispense holy water in a safe way usually also put some thought into actually preventing the spread of disease.

I remember being at Mass years ago and the person in front of me was coughing and sneezing prior to drinking of the cup. The woman wiped the lip of the cup as she did with every parishioner. My turn. “I don’t feel like getting sick today.” You’d think I were the Devil incarnate. “This is the Blood of Christ!” You sure? Cos it looks and tastes like Franzia box wine to me.

I didn’t last long in that parish!

u/samuelalvarezrazo Aug 17 '22

This actually isn't that bad. Like yeah hand sanitizer is optimal but holy water is typically put in a font at church, it's a really good way to spread stuff unfortunately and has bacteria. This way it removes the spreadabilaty of certain diseases.

11

u/toooshay Aug 17 '22

Come on guys - this is not a replacement for hand sanitizer. There's always holy water at the entrances of Catholic Churches and this is a better way to provide access instead of the usual way.

There's no need to make fun of a religious practice that has no relation to this subreddit (and I follow this sub and enjoy the posts - this one just hits wrong)

4

u/bitterdick Aug 17 '22

Do they bless the water after it goes in the dispenser, or before it’s poured in? Or can you just bless the dispenser and all water that comes out is holy? I have many questions.

5

u/bootyhole-romancer Aug 17 '22

Serious answer, they most likely bless the water before it goes in the dispenser. It's usually blessed in a larger vessel and then that water is poured into the various smaller vessels around the church that need it. Saves the priest time with only having to bless once rather than every small amount in every little vessel.

The priest could bless the dispenser (as vessels for religious use are usually blessed) but that would only bless the dispenser, not the water that would be used to continually refill it.

So I'm thinking, y'know, all those magnificent cathedrals and temples from throughout history, well, I know the story that Jesus got rather ticked off about having vendor's market in those places, a disrespect for the almighty and all, but see for many Americans it's "yeah yeah, God is King and all, but as long as it's convenient." Why not just have normal hand sanitizer and then actually come up with a new respectful clean way to distribute the Holy Water - ? Someday - God just might turn around and say, "I know ya wanted to get into heaven, it just isn't really convenient right now" - Just sayin'

u/Paulie227 Aug 16 '22

I come from a non-religious family, but my dad came from a Catholic country and my mother was very neutral so she was kind of like going along with my dad so I've been baptized at the age of 12 and I received communion and I was sent to catechism after school; while my brother was sent to Catholic school and then kicked out for misbehaving 😂. Even my grandparents (mother's side) weren't religious.

I asked the nun one day how do we know Jesus even existed and whatever answer she gave me, which wasn't an answer, I looked at her and I knew even she didn't believe that crap and that was the day I became an atheist (7).

When I finally admitted aloud that I was an atheist it had to do with the political atmosphere and the evangelicals and they're nastiness during the Obama years.

You say "Christian" to me now and, immediately, I think you're a terrible person, even though I know people are individuals. It's basically a word that makes me cringe. 😬

T'was the Christians who made me atheist (plus the fact that none of it makes any logical sense!)

My mother told me one of his teachers told her he did the exact opposite of anything everyone else was supposed to do.

Crayon time? He was building blocks. Building blocks time? He was drawing pictures.

One of friends told her when he came to her house, his feet never touched the floor as he climbed over and walked on everything but the floor.

He was the kid that held a balloon fight with all of the kids in the neighborhood leaving the house covered in water and wet balloon pieces, climbed over fences to steal fruit from the neighbors' fruit trees, would remove all his clothes and ride his tricycle buttnaked (mom would find him by following the trail of discarded clothes), and decide jumping off the roof with an umbrella to float his way down sounded like a good idea!

Interesting. I'm an Episcopalian (and observant) and during the height of the pandemic we were told specifically NOT to put our hands in the Holy Water, and we received Communion in one element only (the bread, but not the wine).

I have a chronic and incurable lung condition; and even though we receive Communion in both kinds (bread and wine), I dip the bread in the wine. Too unsafe to use a common cup. I don't dip my finger in Holy Water: yes, the water may be "holy", but I doubt if the COVID virus cares if the water is holy or not.
