2 ounce bottle of holy water.

This holy water is made in accordance with the traditional pre-Vatican II Roman Catholic rite, which includes exorcism, blessing, and a bit of good old ecclesiastical Latin, by an autocephalous bishop consecrated in several lines of apostolic succession associated with the independent sacramental movement. (That would be me. Read about episcopi vagantes, or so-called wandering bishops, at Wikipedia.)

Please note my goal here is not to commodify or corporatize sacramentals or any sacerdotal accoutrements. You can usually get holy water at your local Catholic church for free if you bring your own container. I'm not claiming mine is special or any better (and if you ascribe to the traditional views of the contemporary Roman Catholic Church, mine is worse because they don't recognize autocephaly -- or women clerics, for that matter).*

Trust me - I am not getting rich selling holy water here, and I think it would be kinda skeevy to try. But in offering it online, I have to cover the costs of packaging, printing, listing, shipping, and payment processing fees. However, if you come by here with your own container, or want to mail me your own container and cover return shipping, I'll give you some holy water for absolutely nothing. 

*Now I will claim that mine has almost certainly had fewer human fingers which have been God-knows-where dipped into it. However, this is still not prepared or packaged as a food or beverage in accordance with food safety regulations, the amount of salt used in its creation is not sufficient to function as a legitimate food preservative, and I do not have a food handler's permit, so it is still not for consumption and you should not drink it.

LEGALESE: As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
