At all times when you wield the weapon, it radiates a divine aura in a personal space which effects the spell Circle of Protection against Undead. When you successfully attack with this weapon, you may activate it by thought to deal an extra 1d6 lethal harm against a target opposed to your faith. Alternatively, you may activate the weapon by touching it against an object to cast the spell Dispel Magic. The Holy Avenger is considered to be a sanctified weapon.
