The liturgy of the Chrism Mass is rich and complex, including as it does, the Blessing of the Oils which will be used in the administering of sacraments over the coming year, and the Renewal of Commitment to Priestly Service by the priests of the Diocese.

He reflected that, at the Chrism Mass, their thoughts may go back to their ordination day. He had...
