MORE ON HOLY WATER FONTS

Sequel to two earlier rants

A couple of weeks ago, I ranted here, then here, on those ecclesiastically misinformed souls who insist that the holy water be removed from fonts during lent to be replaced with such stuff as rocks, sticks, twigs, sand, kitty litter, etc.

Anita at V for Victory has this take which I think is quite good (and quite funny):

First this, from an English astronomer:
Put three grains of sand inside a vast cathedral, and the cathedral will be more closely packed with sand than space is with stars.
- Sir James Jeans, English astronomer


Now this appropriate twist from Anita:
Put three grains of sand inside a vast cathedral's holy water font, and the cathedral will be more closely packed with sand than the parish life director's head is with brains.

So true!
Peace,
