Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:7

it is all about submitting before God, then, and only then, will we have the promise given in Luke 10:19

The Best Description I can find

In Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Old Catholic, Anglo-Catholic, and some other Churches, holy water is water which has been blessed by a priest, a bishop or, for holy water used in Roman Catholic baptisms, a deacon.

http://www.answers.com/topic/holy-water

Definition from several sources tied to one page on Holy Water.

Here's one.
in Christian churches, water blessed to symbolize spiritual cleansing. In Roman Catholic churches there is a bowl (stoup or font) of holy water near the doors, so that the faithful may bless themselves with it on entering. Holy water is a sacramental and is used in formal blessings, including the asperges.
Dogmatism is the comfortable intellectual framework of self-righteousness. Self-righteousness is more decadent than the worst sexual sin. ~ Dan Allender

LOL! PL, no, it's not garlic flavored. Although if it were, it'd have a dual purpose (bless bagels while they boil in it); not a bad idea at all. I will recommend it to my bishop and see what he says.

I just always heard that Holy Water, along with a crucifix, garlic, and sunlight, were surefire weapons against vampires. However, i've never tested these out to make sure, so I'm open for correction. :D
