Chrism Mass
The annual Chrism Mass took place at the Cathedral of Christ the Light on March 24. The Most Rev. Salvatore J. Cordileone, right, raises the censer over the Chrism oils. The bishop writes: "The most moving point of this ceremony for me is when I go throughout the Cathedral to incense the holy oils in the devotional chapels that I just blessed and consecrated. There they are, on display from all of the parishes and other faith communities in our diocese, representing many hundreds of people who have been instructed in the faith and made ready for Christian initiation, or will be comforted by the sacramental healing presence of Christ through his Church in the moment of their suffering."
