Cleansing Before Rituals

Post  AgathonZante on Tue Jan 06, 2015 5:58 pm

Besides taking a ritual bath and bathing in spring water, what are some other ways a person can properly cleanse themselves before doing a ritual? I generally just take a good shower and put on my clean ritual attire.

Just sprinkling oneself with consecrated water is fine.

It is great to be able to take a full bath before worship – but that is certainly not always necessary, nor always possible, whether today or historically.
