BLESSING OF THE OIL OF THE SICK – Send the power of your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, into this precious oil, this soothing ointment, this rich gift,  this fruit of the earth. Bless this oil and sanctify it for our use.

BLESSING OF THE OIL OF CATECHUMENS – Bless this oil and give wisdom and strength to all who are anointed with it in preparation for their baptism.

CONSECRATION OF THE CHRISM – Bless this oil so that all who are anointed with it may be inwardly transformed and come to share in eternal salvation.

“Tonight we begin the Triduum where we will celebrate the costly and difficult progress of Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first born of the dead, the Ruler of the Kings of the earth from Gethsemane, to Calvary and the Resurrection.  May God continue to be with us and our people especially at this time.” [Conclusion of the Homily of Cardinal George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney]
