The Priest sprinkling it on the congregation was authorized. Not Holy water itself. That goes back much earlier than that. Probably Apostolic times.
We do it as a reminder of our Baptism.
Thank you. I checked and you are correct.

In fact, it was an ancient ritual used by many religions -- from Christianity to Sikhism and Hinduism -- to repel evil.

"Catholic saints have written about the power of holy water as a force that repels evil. Saint Teresa of Avila, a Doctor of the Church who reported visions of Jesus and Mary, was a strong believer in the power of holy water and wrote that she used it with success to repel evil and temptations."

But today, you say it is only a reminder, with no power?

No way! Have you seen what it does to vampires?

Doesn't have to be in the bible!! It's recorded all through Church History, for over 2000 years, beginning in 070AD. You've already given the TRUTH up, for your own "editorializing of Church History---I/We as Catholics will just continue to stick with the TRUTH! The Proven Historical and Biblical TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One (and only TRUE) Apostolic Catholic Church.--You, jethro8 can "do what you want"--since you always have and probably always will!!
that's the problem,it's only pagan/christian church history which is meaningless,there is no biblical or scriptural evidence that any one of the churches can make the claim of being the true church,apostolic succession does not exist and that is the back bone of their belief,a man named ignatius gave the church it's name,jesus didn't,so like i said you do not have a holy leg to stand on.and another example is the fact that men are choosing a new pope god isn't,if he were he would of told the council who god's choice is,but it does not happen that way,this tells you that the pope does not have a hot line to god (vicar of christ),he is just a figure head for a conglomerate disguised as a church.their first priority is making money,the teaching of gods word comes third after their unholy man made traditions,if their traditions were guided by devinity you'd find them in the scriptures/bible,but then your big on "hearsay" unprovable so called beliefs/traditions. that is 100% unreliable. you know as well as i do how stories passed on from generation to generation get so twisted,if you looked back to the first person who said it,it would look nothing like the last persons version.you have no biblical proof,mathew which you quote quite often says nothing about "MY CHURCH" meaning the catholic church,if it did jesus would not have said my church,he would of said my catholic church,now that is undeniable proof,and it does not exist.the church means nothing to god/jesus.

I didn't say it didn't have any power. I said its a 'reminder of our Baptism' and that's why we put our hands in it and make the sign of the cross upon entrance into the Church.

First let me say if you do not believe you are Saved ...then you are not.
First things first...If you are not Born again of the Spirit
my answer to your quest would be irrelevant..
As for sining...or rejecting God by your freewill,
The Bible says
Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
Don't dodge my question or hide behind Bible verses.

Can you reject God or not?
Yes you can. The only guarantee of salvation is if you cooperate with God.
A Baby who is baptized can grow up to reject God.
So can you, me and everyone else.

Prove it.
I had no idea it was PROVEN FACT!

That's great. Show us the proof, any proof that would hold up in court.

Memo to La La Land -- if it's "proven," then why does the RCC participate in inter-FAITH councils?

If it was PROVEN, it wouldn't be called a faith.

If it was PROVEN, more than 25% of so-called Catholics would be fully practicing.

If it was PROVEN, this board wouldn't exist.

If it was PROVEN, the RCC would NOT use the power of diplomatic immunity to avoid justice for hundred of sexually-abused orphans and deaf children.

Jesus doesn't guide any church to such shameless actions, that even the country of Ireland was forced to break diplomatic relations, until your so-called PROVEN church re-discovered the moral path.

How shameful that you say Jesus guides anyone or anything to rape orphans.

What next? Jesus guided the worldwide cover-up too?

I don't reject the Bible. I reject your interpretations and countless other Confrints that came before you and will come after you.
I embrace the Church and her interpretations of the Bible. That's the responsible thing to do, since the NT is a result of her authority and it was gathered, complied and labeled for us, by them even though Our Lord Jesus Christ nor His Apostles never commanded we produce a Bible. Right?
You can't put a false label on the Bible and use it for your own private weapon against the Church. That's a sin.

12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,

the N.T. is nothing more than hearsay books,that try to correct the errors found in the books of the O.T. if the catholic church was for real why does it constantly change it's beliefs? the bible and scripture left out is suppose to be gods final word/s it can not be changed, but the R.P.C. church has changed their beliefs many times over the centuries,that tells me, devinity does not exist inside the walls of the church.like i say,it's a conglomerate that is interested in their traditions to fool the public, money and power more than it is interested in the followers of the church,they come last,the abuse cases proves that,if they cared the abuse cases would of been handled properly centuries ago and continued today.

I'm not sure why you're quoting Pauls epistle to the Ephesians here.
This letter was believed written around 65 AD while Paul was imprisoned in Rome. Its theme is Church unity in the Universal (Catholic) Church in Ephesus. Above, Paul is reminding them of the reality of spiritual warfare. That's why its important to stay united.

2,000 yrs later, you appear to be taking this Epistle and somehow applying it to your fantasy battle against the Catholic Church?
I pray not. You'd be sinning for using this letter for any ideology you concocted.
I apologize if I'm wrong, maybe you could clarify why you cited Holy Scripture like that..
