How does the blessing of running Holy water work?
My friend is being confirmed next weekend, and she'll be daubed on the head with Holy water from an old-fashioned font, which will have been suitably blessed.

But how does this work with flowing water? How do you bless, for example, the River Jordan, or the water in these new fangled fonts that double as Dimmockian water features? Do you have to bless the place, and thus all of the water that passes it by is deemed 'Holy', or can you turn a whole river into Holy Water.

Of course, this does have ramifications for my favourite weekend pursuit of slaying vampires with my mate, Buffy.

The blessing is homeopatic and gets stronger the more it is diluted.
