The New York Times article By Molly SmithPercy Priest has been living in the woods in Maine for several years.
When he returned from the wilderness last year, he was struck by the fact that the water he was drinking was so different from what he had experienced previously.
“There was this kind of magical aura about it,” he said.
“I just felt like I was being treated like a deity, like a god.”
The elder Priest was looking forward to having his new water, but was disappointed to discover that the experience wasn’t without its downsides.
“It just felt more like the kind of water you’d have in a museum,” he says.
He had been thinking about making a pilgrimage to see the Holy Grail, a legend about a man who would take water from a pool and turn it into wine, but it had long since been lost to history. “
When Percy Priest returned from his time in the wilderness, he found that he wasn’t really sure what to do with the water.
He had been thinking about making a pilgrimage to see the Holy Grail, a legend about a man who would take water from a pool and turn it into wine, but it had long since been lost to history.
He wasn’t sure what he should do with his new, more purified water, and he couldn’t figure out how to get it into his freezer.
He decided to give it to a friend, a priest named Emily, who lives nearby.”
The two went to Emily’s home and got her to pour it into her freezer. “
She’s very knowledgeable and she was really looking forward for it to be in her freezer, so we were very fortunate to have her to help us out.”
The two went to Emily’s home and got her to pour it into her freezer.
The next morning, Percy and Emily went to the bathroom and took turns pouring the water in the tub.
When the time came to make dinner, they made a quick batch, and they were off to the grocery store.
They left a note in the kitchen, explaining that it was time to drink the water and to thank Emily for all the hard work she’d put in making it.
It wasn’t until Percy and his wife were in the back seat of their pickup truck, waiting for the next ferry to arrive, that they noticed something strange.
“The truck was completely empty, and it was kind of weird,” he recalls.
“And then we started looking around and realized that there was a small sign in the window.
And that’s when we realized, oh, that’s a water bottle.”
The bottle was in fact a small, round silver one, a kind of glass bottle that was filled with a special kind of holy water.
“That was our water bottle,” Percy says.
“When I got it, I was very impressed,” Emily says.
He has since started using it in his church as a way of cleansing and cleansing the church.
“A lot of times we don’t really know how to use it,” Emily explains.
“But that’s kind of our water.”
In the months that followed, Percy Priest has also begun to use the water for other purposes.
In February, he started making wine, and the following week he began to give the water to his patients to drink, including those in intensive care units.
“It’s not a replacement for the normal thing,” he explains.
It’s more of an enhancement of what’s in your body, so you can be very grateful and be a part of the miracle of life.
Emily Priest is the author of the book “Holy Water: A Journey Into the Land of the Spirits” (Everest Press, 2018).
