Abstrak

One characteristic of catholic pilgrimage places is the existence of spring or well (Jv: sendang). It is usually believed that in the pilgrimage places happened miracles related to the spring such as health recovery. Then, many people came there for getting health recovery or other hopes.

In Christianity, water is symbol of baptism, new life, and purification. Of course, the existence of spring in the Catholic pilgrimage places is the sign of new life, hope, and purification.

This study tries to explore the meaning of water in the pilgrimage place, especially in the Catholic temple in Ganjuran Bantul, a famous Catholic pilgrimage place in Yogyakarta. How the pilgrims understand water in the pilgrimage place? Why the pilgrims wash their faces, and even whole bodies there? Why they believe that they will get health recovery by doing that?
