The Holy Water Stoup — Rochester Cathedral, UK

Written on a card available in the Cathedral…

This Holy Water Stoup … contains water blessed and set apart to remind us of the new life which God give us in Jesus.

Christians are baptised into God’s life in Jesus by having water poured over them symbolising dying and being born again; leaving behind everything that diminishes and kills life in its joy and freedom. This comes as a free gift from God bringing healing, reconciliation — a new beginning.  It starts when we believe; it is sealed in baptism and it happens in every moment and every day until the end of time.

You are invited to sign yourself with this water and enjoy the freedom, the love and the refreshing beauty of God.
