Experimental photography is my passion. People, places and things are all in the crosshairs of my camera!

Aspergillum



An aspergillum is used in Roman Catholic and Anglican ceremonies, during Baptism and during the Easter Season. The priest will use the aspergillum to bless the candles during Candlemas services and the palms during Palm Sunday Mass. At a requiem, if a coffin is present, the priest will sprinkle holy water on the coffin. The aspergillum can be used in other manners where sprinkling of holy water is appropriate, as in a house blessing, in which the priest might bless the entry to the home. The name derives from the Latin verb aspergere 'to sprinkle'.
