DATELINE: COW ISLAND, Louisiana
The Diocese of Lafayette rented a crop duster to dump blessed water on townspeople below, according to the church jurisdiction’s Facebook page.
“They loaded 100 gallons of holy water into the plane and the pilot sprayed the water onto the town and the nearby farms,” the Facebook post said. “Parishioners also brought water from home to the airstrip to be blessed by Fr. Barzare.”
The idea of a mass blessing came from a church missionary, who is based in OHIO, but from Cow Island.
