Chrism Mass

Let me start by saying, I did NOT make it to the Mass this morning. I apologize for that. I really wanted to go myself, but Mom and I made the decision not to go based on the fact that it would be very crowded. Mom is not necessarily claustrophobic like me, but I think crowds do have a negative affect on her. I am not only claustrophobic with elevators, but with large crowds as well. I figure we can try again next year and if all works out as I plan, then we’ll have no trouble going at all. 🙂 Anyway let’s get on with this post.

So today is the day, or in some (arch)dioceses Holy Thursday morning, that as many priests that can come together for a Mass. At this Mass the (arch)bishop blesses the holy oils that will be used in Confirmations, Baptisms, and Anointing of the Sick in the upcoming year. Also during this Mass, priests that are present will renew their priestly vows they made at their ordination.

If anything else happens, I wouldn’t know since I haven’t been able to go to one as of yet. Anyway, that seems to be the gist of it from what I can gather online and from priest friends.

Tomorrow, I will write about what I’ve just learned about this year: Spy Wednesday.

God bless!

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single.
