Hey all,

What would be a good way to explain the use of Holy Water to a non-believer without making it sound like something superstitious?
It might sound like a good-luck charm or something to some people.

Thanks.

Confusing and complicated answer to a simple question.

Holy water is a sacramental. It is a symbolic reminder of repentance of sin, protection from evil, and baptism.

There is something wrong with your link the picture at the heading of the article covers a large portion of the article.
It is complicating things a bit.

It might be a mobile vs. desktop issue.
