If you want to wash the Holy water of the patient, you need to tell him about it. The effect is achieved only if the person understands and accepts what is happening. Take a small container with Holy water, read over her the prayer, and reverently rinse the patient's face a few times. If desired, the procedure can be accompanied by prayers and imposition of the sign of the cross, but not necessarily.
Young children also can wash Holy water. If the child is breast-to understand the meaning of what is happening, he still can not, but the grace and as adults at the time of ablution, of course, will feel.

The baby can be lightly rinsed with Holy water, saying a prayer. If the baby is big and understand what is happening, explain to him that he have to wash in Holy water. Children are usually very sensitive to feel the grace of Holy water and willingly subjected to such ablutions.
