Chrism Holy Mass & Renewal of Priestly Commitment at Lourdes Cathedral - Umzimkulu Diocese. May Jesus, the High Priest strengthen the priests and deacon in Umzimkulu Diocese and around the world.
We pray & wish our Priests and Deacons, new gifts of the Holy Spirit to be able to respond to new pastoral and life challenges of today's world.

In his homily during today's mass of the blessings of the oil Pope Francis said: "We are not distributors of bottled oil. We anoint by distributing ourselves, distributing our vocation and our heart. When we anoint others, we ourselves are anointed anew by the faith and the affection of our people. We anoint by dirtying our hands in touching the wounds, the sins and the worries of the people. We anoint by perfuming our hands in touching their faith, their hopes, their fidelity and the unconditional generosity of their self-giving."
