A Reminder of the Baptismal Covenant
A holy water font is a vessel which holds the blessed or “holy” water and is often placed at the entrance of a home or chapel or in one’s bedroom. The holy water in this font reminds us of the waters of our own baptism and is then a powerful symbol or our journey ever more deeply into the Paschal Mystery.
