    I saw an Orthodox priest on TV sprinkling Holy Water down a street after an LGBT parade had gone thru. I simply loved it - but I'm not well versed on Holy Water.

    Is it's use from apostolic times?

    What exactly is it's function? I thought I had read it's a sacramental - and where the water goes it carries the prayer with it - but I'm open to any more in depth history and explanation.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
