What is the significance of using salt in rituals like Baptism? When is it blessed, what time of year? When oil and water are blessed? I have never seen the salt blessed or never noticed it being done but it stands to reason that it is.
I found this passage in Leviticus 2:13 but it has to do with a grain offering. This is the only passage I have found referring to salt. Is this when the practice of using salt started?
'Every grain offering of yours, moreover, you shall season with salt, so that the salt of the covenant of your God shall not be lacking from your grain offering; with all your offerings you shall offer salt."
The occult world also uses salt in rituals (not sure why). Any correlation in reasoning? * I’m not inferring Catholics are doing an occult ritual. Just curious.
