Holy water is usually common tap water which has been magically transformed through the blessing of a priest. Holy water has the power to cure the sick and ward off vampires and demons. Oh, and it is a medieval melee weapon. When thrown on the ground, it creates a damaging flame that slides post-Rondo.
It's also helpful for keeping your sinful infant from going to hell.
 Roman Catholic holy water
Special blessed water has been important since early on in the Roman Catholic Church where it's a continuation of traditions from the Greco-Roman religion. Water can also be holy because of the place it comes from; you can even buy special holy water from Lourdes online, keep a bottle in your home or carry it with you and it will shield you from the powers of darkness. And since business remains profitable, the church won't complain.
 Hygiene Concerns
In spite of its supernatural properties, holy water becomes stagnant and tepid when kept in a container, and has the potential to spread bacterial and viral infections when people dip their hands into it on a continuous basis. This issue was possibly nullified when some Italians used technology to create and install a motion-sensing, hands-free holy water dispenser in one of their churches.
