The Lord God has anointed me and has sent me to bring the good News to the poor, to give them the oil of gladness.  (Isaiah 61)

Every year Holy Week brings with it the Mass of the Holy Oils, or Chrism Mass, when the oils used for anointing the sick, anointing catechisms, and for Baptism, Confirmation and Ordination to the priesthood, are blessed.
