NACEC 2018 Synod at Our Lady in the Valley Episcopal Church, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Chrism Mass con-celebrated by Presiding Bishop Doyle and priests of NACEC, & Closing Mass
The Chrism Mass is a celebration of the unity of priests with their bishop. Red is used because the Holy Spirit is called upon to bless the Holy Oils which each priest takes back to their ministry. These are the Oil of Catechumens used in Baptism, Sacred Chrism used in Baptism and Confirmation, and the Oil of the Infirm used in the blessing the sick. Bishop Doyle is shown blowing on the Sacred Chrism to stir the oil, symbolic of the Holy Spirit coming upon the oil.
