"There are still people who are considered to have special powers in connection with springs. The Clergy have Christianized them by putting them under the protection of a local saint. Sometimes, this has resulted in a curious synthesis of Christian and pagan practice. At St-Jean-du-Doigt, for instance the parish priests go in procession every year, in order to renew healing qualities of the spring, and dip a relic in the water.......
The sacred springs are reputed to cure a wide variety of afflictions, including eye troubles, infectious illnesses, chest complaints, fevers, rheumatism and toothache. They also have powers of divination...... Offerings are made to encourage a favourable prognostication; they usually take the form of coins, nails or pins which are thrown into the spring."
