    The mental health professionals watch my YouTube channel, and after seeing 10 videos about Mussolini in 24 hours , they knew I was manic and paid for me to go to a Franciscan monastery far away:


    So, my bottle of holy water was only half-full. I filled it up all the way with water from the sink.

    Is the water still as holy or is it only 50 proof?

    Franciscan monastery! I always wondered what the monks do there besides make monk's bread. Studying theology perhaps, i don't know.

    It's half-holy water. :D

    You'll have to use twice as much.

    Not necessarily. I have never understood how this doesn't violate the commandment regarding graven images.

    Yahweh commanded the Israelites to put images of cherubim on the Ark of the Covenant. Either way, they're not worshipped as gods so they're not "idols".

    That was the Old Testament. A lot of the Old Testament does not apply to Christians.

    God commanded the Israelites to do the opposite of what he formerly commanded. he commanded them to make a graven image a bronze serpent and turn to the bronze serpent for healing when they got bit by venomous snakes.
