None, but his weapon of choice was an axe.
While receiving confession from a career criminal who did drugs, murdered, and snitched his friends out to the cops, Father Redondo was pushed over the edge when the man asked to have sins absolved so he could go out and commit some more. Enraged, Redondo grabbed an axe, opened the confessional door, and hacked the criminal into pieces. He then collapsed to the floor, begging God for forgiveness, as he'd done it again. He continued in this fashion on several others, as his cleaning lady, Mrs. Pearse was virtually blind, deaf, and anosmic (unable to smell), and she simply wiped up whatever mess was left after he'd disposed of the bodies in garbage bags.
Still, the Holy--as he now called himself--despaired over the sins he himself was committing, until seeing a newspaper article describing the Punisher, and he realized he was no longer alone. Officers Soap and von Richtofen investigated the deaths, but Redondo simply feigned innocence and then showed him out, while his as yet undiscovered fifth victim was sitting in his confession booth with an axe in his chest.
The Holy was killed by the Punisher shortly after helping form the Vigilante Squad.
