Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end.

Holy Water

When Holy Water is blessed by a priest, he says the following prayer:

"Wherever this salt and water are sprinkled,drive away the power of evil, and protect us always by the presence of your Holy Spirit"

When we bless ourselves with holy water, making the sign of the cross, saying "In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen", we invoke the Holy Trinity, as well as the power of the Cross. Therefore, Holy Water, used with faith and devotion, is a powerful way to invoke the protection of the Lord.
