HOLY WATER BASIN IN THE DOOR CHURCH

HOLY WATER BASIN IN THE DOOR CHURCH
BY: RD BENNO OLAG TAGE
 Dear brothers and sisters!
Several weeks ago, we were given a brief understanding of the sacrament Ekarisiti. Currently, we move further to understand the celebration of the Eucharist. So we, increasingly understand and appreciate the Eucharistic banquet.
At every door of the church, chapel or synagogue in the Catholic Church, we find a container filled with water. The water in the container is holy water. Holy water is natural water / almiah who have been blessed by the priest. People who go to worship, and left the church, they are usually dipped his right hand with the index finger, and made the sign of the cross. This is the right attitude and for that, the container is provided in the church door. Brothers and sisters have done many times. The kids even picked to reach the container, so that they can be hand-dipped in holy water.
Our lives begin to water
In the beginning of our personal lives, we got our human form in the fluid sac of amniotic fluid in the womb of the mother. Likewise, life the universe was preceded by the presence of water. In the story of creation described in Genesis: '... darkness was deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the water (Kej.1: 2.6). God always signifies a new life with water. For example, renewal of a sinful world, a world ravaged by the flood and after the flood receded, new life emerges. Similarly, Israel was redeemed from Egypt and they have to go through the red sea to get a new life. At the time of Moses, the water gives a spiritual rebirth for the nation of Israel.
Came the day "grace", the coming of the Lord Jesus, receive water from the divine power of the Word made flesh that the Lord Jesus. By sarakremen Baptist, drink water, we are born again of water and the Spirit (Yoh.3: 5). For the Church Fathers, when he fell in the water of the Jordan, Jesus has sanctified water around the world. Jesus made the water able to give divine life (Yoh.4 :10-14) for humans. Then water mark grace the Holy Spirit. This was later confirmed by the Last Book of Revelation "river of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and the throne of the Lamb (Rev 22:1).
Pondering all this, St.Thomas Aquinas concluded that the water has become a sacrament (sign of sanctification-consecration) and also natural since the creation in Jesus, the water became a sign of life by the Holy Spirit.
Holy water door of the Church: The History and Meaning
When the nation of Israel for the first time to build a place of worship, they are complete with bronze becana put in place at the entrance. This tradition, followed by the students. They wash themselves before praying in the synagogue. St.Paulus said:. . I want men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands (1 Tim 2:8). Holy hands which means hand washed with holy water. In the 2nd century (300san years), Tertullian to report that there is a habit to wash your hands before communion or worship. Eusabius historians, around the year 320 AD noted that that there is a fountain in a church in Tyre, where the faithful wash their hands.
Since then, the unbroken history of the church, the holy water is poured in a container in the church doorway. You will find in the Catholic church wherever you are. If there is no container and holy water, nothing wrong there. Especially dirty, mossy and snaking wiggler, it is not canting the Holy Spirit, but it had not been cleaned.
Every time you log in and out of the church we shall denote themselves with the sign of the cross by fingers that had been washed holy water. This signifies, I came to my God, the living God, the God who gives life to us. Into the church, then we get into a place, where we were celebrating worship / Eucharist, we obtain life, namely the divine life. Divine life is the Holy Spirit himself for me to resist sin, to overcome weaknesses, heal yourself from physical and spiritual gap defects. Worship / celebration of the eucharist is the renewal of our lives. Note the quotes by the holy water blessing prayer St. Serapion of Egypt in the 4th century: "Let Your word unspeakable down into the water, changing its power and make it able to produce something because it has been filled with Thy grace."
When dipping looking for, do solemnly, mindful and polite, because you're touching the divine power of God in the water. Divine power that will guide us for the Eucharist, worship or private prayer, so as to understand, to sip and experience the gift of grace in all the words of prayer, chants and gestures during worship. Power of the Holy Spirit, makes us embrace berkosentarasi the celebration from start to finish. Water dye it, I want to say God sanctify myself you for him. God I was ready to hear Your word and greet thy body. Bring up to me since I have been the first step into the church for the encounter with God. So, we must not dye, we did not realize when dyeing. Aware something is going on with you even when you first get into the church.
Meditate again on the meaning of holy water, you will be more sensitive to the power of God in celebrating faith or personal prayer.
