UPDATE: I spoke to the pastor who said it's a Lent thing. He did not use that exact phrase. He used appropriate priestly words. Right now we are to concentrate on our journey with Jesus. The Holy Water will return at Easter. You can bet some of us will really, really, really appreciate. Lent does feel like a desert w/no Holy Water.
Yes, the pastor at my parish took away the Holy Water!!!! A lady at my parish told me it's because the priest said we "weren't using it right." Well, if the congregation needs correction, correct us by using words! It's like we're children, and he's the parent. The lady also said that he said that we don't need the holy water.
We need more holiness, not less.
I WANT MY HOLY WATER!!!!
I am concerned.
You know when you walk in, and you bless yourself with holy water, and it's a reminder of our baptismal promises? Yep, the holy water fount is GONE!
