Our Sacred Heart Holy Water Font adds a beautiful delicate touch to your domestic church. Place it near the front door, or in the nursery for a special reminder of God's loving mercy!
“The symbolism of water signifies the Holy Spirit’s action in Baptism, since after the invocation of the Holy Spirit it becomes the efficacious sacramental sign of new birth: just as the gestation of our first birth took place in water, so the water of Baptism truly signifies that our birth into the divine life is given to us in the Holy Spirit. As ‘by one Spirit we were all baptized,’ so we are also ‘made to drink of one Spirit.’ Thus the Spirit is also personally the living water welling up from Christ crucified as its source and welling up in us to eternal life” (CCC 694).

Beautiful, but a little tricky to hang! There is a spot for a nail to hang on the back. We plan to reinforce with a little mounting putty to prevent any slammed doors or clumsy kids from inadvertently knocking off the wall.
This was my second purchase from House of Joppa, craftsmanship is amazing.
The piece is beautiful!
