Blessing from Heaven in the Louisiana Sky

Oh Lordy, I’m not Catholic but I can’t let this lovely story slip by unnoticed.  For me it’s interesting news when a crop-duster steps out of its usual role as an aerial applicator; i.e. crop protection products, seeds and fertilizer. That’s normal. So is sailplane and banner tows. What’s not normal is what this taildragger dropped.

A crop-duster recently did a low passes over a small Louisiana community and dropped blessing from heaven from above. Holy water. Now that’s news!

Holy water dispersed by a pilot flying a turbine Ag Cat

Location: Diocese of Lafayette, St. Anne Church, Cow Island, Louisiana

Their Facebook page reports: “Fr. Matthew Barzare and parishioners of St. Anne Church in Cow Island, Louisiana  enlisted the help of a cropduster to bless their community. They loaded 100 gallons of holy water into the plane and the pilot sprayed the water onto the town and the nearby farms. Parishioners also brought water from home to the airstrip to be blessed by Fr. Barzare. The blessing was the brainchild of L’Eryn Detraz, a missionary currently stationed in Ohio who is a native of Cow Island. A happy and blessed Christmas to everyone from St. Anne Church and parishioners!”

Water brought from local families to be blessed.

Pilots and non-pilots thinking outside the box are changing the world for the better!
