I changed the title from bless to sprinkle because of course a lay person really can’t do this kind of blessing.
OK I just want to clarify. I had read somewhere that when priests were praying the Holy Rosary outside of an abortion clinic they could hear growling that was NOT from a natural source. Of course we know who that could have possibly been. I know that Holy Water has MANY “helps” attached to its use. I have sprinkled my childrens’ bedroom when they were having rough times. I just was wondering if while praying QUIETLY if those praying QUIETLY outside of an abortion clinic could also sprinkle the Holy water (at the legal distance allowed—sidewalk) and ask special prayers for those inside. I have never been anywhere near an abortion clinic and of course I would NOT or recommend to anyone to do this inside. It would NOT be for show or attention. It would be for help from the Holy Spirit for those there to stop doing what they are doing. The Holy Water would never be sprinkled on any person or inside the building just discreetly outside while praying. And in no way would they be disturbing the peace. I was just asking to honestly know if this would help as well as praying for those inside.
Let’s say there were a group of Catholics praying outside (legal distance allowed) of an abortion clinic and one of them or even a priest wanted to bless the area/building (again legal distance allowed by law) with Holy Water could they and pray that those considering an abortion, or taking part in abortions would be protected from satan and have a change of heart.
