...tonight at rcia. i'm excited in that i asked our Monsignor after mass this morning if i could *borrow* some of the chrism used in anointing the foreheads of the confirmandi for a "show & smell" (i love the way the oil smells...it's just so holy!) not only did he give me the "oil of consecration," but also the "oil of the infirm" and "oil for catechumens", meaning miss penni has all the oils the church uses in her house right now!!!
oh my gosh, you could have knocked me over.
he said "treat it as you would a Host" and "don't take the lids off anything other than the oil for confirmation..."
who almost spilled it in the car? (you REALLY could have knocked me over then!!!)
pray for me in my travels back to church tonight and that i present this in a clear, understanding manner, and that these precious oils make it back to their home safely.... thanks :)
