Pilot Douses Town in Holy Water
A crop duster was recently used in Louisiana to spray 100 gallons of “holy water” over the town of Cow Island.
The community-wide blessing was thought up by L’Eryn Detraz, a native of Cow Island and a missionary currently stationed in Ohio, the diocese said.
Parishioners of St. Anne Church brought water from home to be blessed by Fr. Matthew Barzare before it was loaded onto a plane and distributed by a cropduster pilot.
A nice thought, perhaps, but it doesn’t work like that.
To quote a Christian comedian, it doesn’t matter if you got dunked or sprinkled — if you don’t believe Jesus Christ is your Savior, you just got wet.
