Anointing with the Oil of Chrism

Priests and Kings were anointed with oil and set apart as God’s special leaders. In the same way the oil of chrism is a reminder that we share the power of Christ the Priest: to offer praise and thanks to God the Father, we share the power of Christ the Prophet: that we may speak words of peace and encouragement, and we share the power of Christ the King: that we may serve God in the world through our work, making a better world in serving the needs of others.

The new Christian wore the white garment for a week as a sign that he had taken on a new way of life.
