I was wondering one thing about the holy water.
Lets say the priest bless the water but doesnt add any salt, is it possible for a person to add salt by himself or will it be an abuse?
That should not be done.
Just because one person does not "like" the particular way that a priest did a blessing, does not give a license to "improve" upon it. If one would like for the priest to add the salt as part of the blessing ritual, or would prefer that the priest use the more solemn ritual that includes the salt, by all means make the request.
The subject here is Holy Water and adding salt to it is hardly a liturgical abuse as such, but the principle behind doing so is a very dangerous one. When a priest uses the formula for blessing approved by the Church, we should not be questioning the Church's decision to approve a new ritual. That's a very dangerous mindset to adopt.
