Saw this story and my immediate reaction was to laugh.

MOSCOW - More than 100 Russian Orthodox believers have been hospitalized after drinking holy water during Epiphany celebrations in the eastern city of Irkutsk, authorities in Siberia said.A spokesman for local investigators told The Associated on Monday that 117 people, including 48 children, are in the hospital complaining of acute intestinal pain after drinking water from wells around a local church last week.

That's just the Holy Spirit saying hello to your upper intestine!

LOL it's Yahweh's idea of a practical joke!
The things they're willing to believe in order to be blessed astound me. Next time maybe they'll boil it first. Unless god really wanted those holy microbes to make them feel humble?
They are not doing it right. Homeopathic holy water works better. Or they could use chlorine. And some fluoride for the teeth.

But it all transubstantiation-izes into blood so they mitht add some HIV vaccine as well.
